proposed to acquire by purchase: 

a) from Norman J. Emblem, 196 common shares of the capital stock of Norman's 
Transfer Limited, 97 common shares of the capital stock of Lawson Transport 
Limited and 219 common shares of the capital stock of Montreal-Cornwall express 
Lines Limited; 

b) from Gordon Emblem, one common share of the capital stock of Norman's Transfer 
Limited; 

c) from Norman Emblem, Junior, one common share of the capital stock of Lawson 
Transport Limited; and 

d) from Noel Emblem, one common share of the capital stock of Montreal-Cornwall 
Express Lines Limited. 

The Purchaser further advised the Commission that it already held 206 of the 403 
common shares, issued and outstanding, of the capital stock of Norman's Transfer 
Limited. 104 of the 202 common shares, issued and outstanding, of the capital stock of 
Lawson Transport Limited, and 230 of the 450 common shares, issued and outstanding, 
of the capital stock of Montreal-Cornwall Express Lines Limited. 

The Purchaser, as directed by the Commission, gave public notice of the proposed 
acquisition in the June 29, 1968 issue of the Canada Gazette. The Commission, as 
required by law, gave notice of that acquisition to the Director of Investigation and 
Research under the Combines Investigation Act. 

Asa result of the notice published in the Canada Gazette, the following persons, 
hereinafter called "The Opposing Parties", objected to the proposed acquisition: 

Sicotte Transport Limitee, H. Lapalme Limitee, Leo Tremblay Transport, Associa- 
tion du Camionnage du Quebec Inc., Canadian Trucking Association Inc. and 
Eamer Daye Transport Limited. 

By letter dated December 6, 1968, the Solicitor for Eamer Daye Transport Limited 
advised the Commission that his client had withdrawn its objection.

PAMPHLET NO. 1 



JANUARY 1969 



Following a request by the Commission for fuller particulars with regard to the 
reasons in support of the objection, Me Lacoste stated in a letter dated November 26, 
1968: 

"Les opposants soutiennent que I'avis d'acquisition proposee qui a ete depose 
par Smithsons Holdings Ltd., devrait etre rejete parce que la requerante Smithsons 
Holdings Ltd. est ni une compagnie de chemins de fer, une compagnie de pipeline 
pour denrees, une compagnie de transport par eau, une personne exploitant une 
entreprise de transport par vehicules-moteurs ou un transporteur par air, assujetti a 
la competence legislative du Parlement du Canada, et en consequence ne peut se 
prevaJoir des dispositions de la Loi Nationale sur les Transports en ce qui regarde 
I'achat, la fusion, la consolidation etc. des entreprises de transports, et qu'en 
consequence la Commission a erree lorsqu'elle a donne ou fait donner I'avis public 
publie dans la Gazette du Canada, le 29 juin 1 968." 

At the hearing, before proceeding witn the hearing of the witnesses, the Cliairman 
advised the Solicitors that the Commission had decided to hear first of all their arguments 
on that question of law. 

Me Lacoste, for the Opposing Parties, declared that Smithsons Holdings Limited 
"est une compagnie de gestion qui detient des parts" of several transport companies 
"pour le benefice de ses actionnaires principaux ou son actionnaire principal, le C.P.R." 
He knows, he said, "que le veritable adversaiie ici, dans le present cas, c'est le C.P.R." 

He then said: "Ici, c'est un subsidiaire du C.P.R. qui s'adresse a un Comite de 
camionnage. Moi, je veux necessairement etre relegue non pas a la division du chemin de 
fer, nous sommes dans une cause de camionnage, il faut etre relegue a la division du 
camionnage." 

It seems difficult to reconcile this argument with the point of law raised by Me 
Lacoste in his letter of November 26th, when he said among other tilings that the 
Purchaser was not "une personne exploitant une entreprise de transport par vehicules- 
moteurs " 

Then Me Lacoste, after having recalled the principle of law that "nul ne peut 
plaider au nom d'autrui" and after having quoted Article 357 of the Civil Code, adds: "Je 
dis done que la compagnie du C.P.R. acquerait indirectement des parts. Si elle le fait par 
I'entremise d'un intermediaire, iJ est possible aussi que I'intermediaire soit affecte. Je dis 
done que le texte dans I'avis devrait nommement etre fait au nom du C.P.R. et que le 
C.P.R. doit venir dire devant cette Commission quels sont ses subsidiaires, quelles sont ses 
operations ferroviaires et de plus, ses autres operations, en particulier, ses operations de 
camionnage." 

He concluded his oral argument by saying: "Pour cette raison, ma conclusion en 
droit, c'est que I'avis qui a ete donne est incomplet et illegal et que la personne qui est 
reellement concernee dans cette cause Test indirectement, et tel que dit dans la loi, n'est 
pas presente. En consequence, cette demande d'approbation doit etre rejetee."

PAMPHLET NO. 1 



JANUARY 1969 



In this connection, I believe I should point out that under Section 20 the 
Commission has not the power to approve a proposed acquisition. In fact, the only 
consequence wliich a notice of acquisition filed with the Commission as required by 
Section 20, Subsection (1) can have, is that the Commission as a result of an objection 
made under Subsection (3) of the said Section *'may disallow any such acquisition if in 
the opinion of the Commission, such acquisition will unduly restrict competition or 
otherwise be prejudicial to the public interest." 

In this case, a notice considered reasonable was published in the Canada Gazette, 
issue of June 29, 1968, the first paragraph of which reads as follows: 

"By direction of the Canadian Transport Commission, Smithsons Holdings 
Limited, incorporated in the Province of Ontario, with Head Office at 150 
Commissioners Street, Toronto, Ontario a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian 
Pacific Railway Company, hereby gives notice, pursuant to Section 20 of the 
National Transportation Act, that it proposes to acquire by purchase: . . 

In my opinion, one of the purposes of Section 20 is that a notice, considered 
reasonable by the Commission, be given of a proposed acquisition, so that the persons 
mentioned in Subsection (3) of the said Section 20 may, if they so wish, object to a 
proposed acquisition on the grounds mentioned in the said Subsection (3). 

The Opposing Parties neither alleged in their opposition, nor claimed in the 
argument in law, that the Purchaser was not, as mentioned in the notice published in the 
Canada Gazette "a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Railway Company". In 
fact, it is precisely because they recognized the Purcliaser as a subsidiary of the C.P.R. 
that they objected and do object to the acquisition. 

The Solicitor for the Purchaser also recognized the interest of the C.P.R. in the 
acquisition, and this is what he said in that connection: 

"Or, lorsque le Legislateur a inscrit dans la loi le mot indirectement, il ne I'a pas 
mis, il ne I'a pas inclus pour les simples fins de voir un mot additionnel dans le 

texte II a voulu qu'une compagnie de chemin de fer tombant sous la 

juridiction du Parlement du Canada puisse acquerir soit directement ou, je 
comprends tres bien, je reconnais que nous aurions pu, que le C.P.R. aurait pu 
acquerir directement, ou, il nous a accorde aussi le droit de le faire indirectement. 
Or, ce mot, indirectement, c'cst par Fentremise d'une autre personne ou 
corporation. Alors, I'autre corporation dont nous nous servons, c'est la corporation 
dite Smithsons Holdings Limited. De toute fa9on, nous avons envoye I'avis public, 
revelant a tous que nous avions un interet indirect vu le controle que nous 
possedons des actions dans Smithsons Holdings Limited." 

I am of the opinion that the Opposing Parties understood very well that the 
Purchaser was a company completely controlled by the C.P.R. and that consequently, the 
proposed acquisition by the Purchaser was indirectly a proposed acquisition by the C.P.R. 

59 R.T.C.

Me Lemieux declared at the hearing: 

"L'Association canadicnne du camionnage ne pent pas, comme Pa indique Me 
Gadbois, au point de vuc pratique, dire qu'elle a subi un prejudice dans la forme de 
I'avis. Je lui concede que PAssociation n'a pas eu de prejudice par la forme de I'avis. 
Ce que monsieur Lacoste a argumente peut avoir des consequences formidables 
dans la procedure pour cette Commission, dans les causes qu'elle aura a entendre 
dans Favenir. Simplement pour me repeter, nous savons que Smithsons Holdings 
Limited est un subsidiaire du C.P.R." 

In this connection, I believe it advisable to recall what the Canadian Trucking 
Associations Inc. said in its opposition: 

"The objection of the Canadian Trucking Associations Inc. is made on behalf of 
Sicotte Transport Limitee, H. Lapalme Limitee and Leo Tremblay Transport, and 
in support of the objection to the proposed acquisition filed by Sicotte Transport 
Limitee, H. Lapalme Limitee and Leo Tremblay Transport." 

If it is true, as stated by Me Lacoste in his letter of November 26, 1968, that the 
Purchaser is not a person who, pursuant to Section 20, is required to give notice of the 
proposed acquisition, the C.P.R. , wliich would indirectly acquire the shares which it is 
proposed to purchase, is a railway company subject to the legislative authority of the 
Parliament of Canada. 

Even if the notice left room for doubt — which I cannot agree it does — that it is 

the C.P.R. which proposed to acquire indirectly , the recognition by the Opposing 

Parties (as well as the Purchaser) of the interest of the C.P.R. constitutes in my opinion a 
plea in bar to their claims. 

For the above reasons, I come to the conclusion that the public notice published in 
the Canada Gazette on June 29, 1968, is sufficient and reasonable, that the Opposing 
Parties did not suffer any prejudice either in fact or in law due to the language of such 
notice, and that the Railway Transport Committee of the Commission, by virtue of the 
"Canadian Transport Commission's General Rules", is the Committee whose duty and 
responsibility it is to hear and dispose of, in this case, the oppositions of the Opposing 
Parties. 

I think it is useful to note that attention be drawn here to Rule 660 of the 
Commission's General Rules which states as follows: 

"No proceedings shall be defeated by any objections based upon defects in form 
merely." 

As for the claim of the Counsel for the Purchaser to the effect that section 20 
would give the railway companies the right to acquire, directly or indirectly, an interest in 
the business of any person engaged in transport operations, I submit that Section 20 itself 
does not grant such a right. It imposes on a person mentioned in Subsection (1) the 
obligation of giving notice of a proposed acquisition to the Commission. One must look 

59 R.T.C. 



-5 - 



PAMPHLET NO I 



JANUARY 1969 



elsewhere for llie legal basis of the right to acquire. All doubt in that connection 
disappears on the reading of Subsection (5) of Section 20 which reads as follows: 

"Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize any acquisition of an 
interest in any other company that is prohibited by any Act of the Parliament of 
Canada." 

Having disposed of the arguments on the question of law, I must now consider the 
merit of the objections made by the Opposing Parties. 

The Opposing Parties object to the proposed acquisition saying that in the public 
interest sliippers should benefit from two distinct modes of transport which are really 
competitive, i.e. truck and railway; tJiat it is impossible for the private trucking business 
to compete with railways subsidized by the State; that an important part of the highway 
transport business is owned, or controlled, directly or indirectly, by the two main railway 
companies, contrary to the policy established in Section 1 of the National Transportation 
Act; that the independent road carrier industry has not the financial resources of the 
C.P.R. and that the proposed acquisition will facilitate capital increases by the C.P.R. to 
its subsidiaries to the detriment of road carriers; that for several years, Norman's Transfer 
Limited and Montreal-Cornwall Express Lines Limited have held a virtual monopoly of 
the transportation at Cornwall and that through their opposition to the applications for 
licences by other road carriers before the Transportation Boards of the Provinces of 
Quebec and Ontario, they have restricted the access to Cornwall to other truckers. 

At the hearing, the witness Sicotte produced a licence issued by the Transportation 
Board of the Province of Quebec restricting his Montreal-Cornwall operations. The 
witness Martin at the hearing read part of the statement made by the Province of Quebec 
on January 4, 1961, to the Royal Commission on Transportation, and declared that he 
had been authorized by his Deputy Minister to say that this was the policy of the 
Province of Quebec in the matter of transport. 

Mr. Roy gave evidence on certain tariffs between Montreal-Cornwall, Toronto- 
Cornwall and Toronto-Montreal. He declared that the trucking tariffs in Quebec are 
regulated by the Transportation Board, while in Ontario the tariffs are filed. "Les taux 
doivent etrc approuves," he said, "mais il n'y a pas de controle specifique. Au Quebec on 
exerce un controle." 

The witness, Mr. Archambault, Executive Director of the Association du Camion- 
nage du Quebec Inc., produced as exhibits in support of the objection copies of 
resolutions or declarations of the Association du Camionnage du Que'bec Inc. to the 
effect that the Association is opposed to the entry of the railways into the trucking 
industry. As for the Montreal-Cornwall situation, the witness declares that the members 
of his Association have always complained about the monopoly which exists between 
Montreal and Cornwall. He adds that trucking firms have asked for a licence for that 
location and been refused. The public in general is also complaining. To his knowledge, 
some thirty persons have complained about the existing monopoly and certain tariffs

which are higher between Montreal and Cornwall as compared with other places for the 
same goods and the same distances. 

Finally, the witness Gendreau explained that Canadian Trucking Associations Inc. 
has always opposed "I'acces par le chemin de far sur les transports routiers", and further 
on he adds: 

"I'exploitation combinee pour les chemins de fer du transport routier at 
ferroviaire cree un monopole parce que Taccroissement de ce controle par las 
chemins de fer sera sans limite, et n'y aura plus de concurrence et ce sara contra 
Tinteret public." 

As for the remainder of the evidence of Mr. Gendraau, I quote the summary thereof made 
by Mr. Lamieux in his pleadings: 

"He pointed out that in the Canadian Pacific annual statement there were two 
items wliich could be considered as hidden subsidies: first, there were the holdings 
by CP of 5% non-cumulative preferred shares in both Smith's Transport and 
Smithsons Holdings. 



The suggestion intended to be conveyed to the Committee is that since dividend 
payments under the preferred shares were not cumulative, these shares might 
constitute a source of funds which could permit Canadian Pacific to launch a rate 
war among the trucking industry and thus cause instability in that industry." 

The Purchaser did not call any witnesses, but filed a series of exhibits, including 
exhibit No. 8 which is a decision by the Transportation Board of the Province of Quebec, 
dated April 24, 1958, approving "the transfer of the majority of the shares of Norman's 
Transfer Ltd., Brydges Transportation Ltd. and Lawson Transport Ltd. from Norman J. 
Emblem to Smithsons Holdings Ltd." It would appear from Exhibit No. 8, that the 
Association du Camioimage du Quebec Inc. and Canadian Trucking Associations Inc., 
represented by Me Lacoste, would have objected to that acquisition and transfer. 

According to Section 20, Subsection (3), any person affected may object "on the 
grounds that" such an acquisition "will unduly restrict competition or otherwise ba 
prejudicial to the public interest." And in Subsection (4) of the same section, it states: 

**Where objection is made pursuant to Subsection (3) the Commission 



b) may disallow any such acquisition if in the opinion of the Commission such 
acquisition will unduly restrict competition or otherwise be prejudicial to the 
public interest;" 

Those are the only two grounds which the Commission may and must consider, and those 
are also the only grounds on which a person affected may object.

Evidence was given that certain operating permits issued by the Provincial authority 
to road carriers contained certain restrictions, while in other cases the Provincial Board 
would have refused to road carriers operating permits. That is a discretion which 
Provincial Transport Commissions enjoy under the Motoi Vehicle Transport Act. 

Evidence was also given that the Montreal-Cornwall tariffs would apparently be 
higher than those for other localities. Here again, the power of regulating tariffs is a 
power enjoyed by the Provinces under the Motor Vehicle Transport Act arid which 
apparently is being exercised by the Province of Quebec, according to the witness Roy. 
Furthermore, no evidence was given that as a result of the proposed acquisition those 
tariffs would in any way be modified or that tariffs would be imposed which could restrict 
competition or otherwise be prejudicial to the public interest. 

In fact, the Commission has not the power to interfere in the decisions handed 
down under the Motor Vehicle Transport Act. 

Finally, according to the evidence, and this is not denied, the Purchaser already 
owns and controls 51% or more of the shares issued and outstanding of Norman's 
Transfer Limited, of Lawson Transport Limited (company since sold to Glengarry 
Transport Limited) and of Montreal-Cornwall Express Lines Limited. In view of these 
facts, it is difficult to understand how the acquisition of the remainder of the shares 
issued and outstanding of those companies 'Svill unduly restrict competition or otherwise 
be prejudicial to the public interest", and in my opinion there is no evidence to that 
effect. 

After examining and studying the documents filed and produced, as well as the 
evidence given at the hearing, I have reached the conclusion that there is no ground for 
the Commission to disallow the proposed acquisition, as in my opinion, there is no 
evidence that such acquisition will unduly restrict competition or otherwise be prejudicial 
to the pubHc interest.

Par lettre en date du 6 decembre 1968, le procureur de Earner Daye Transport Limited 
avisait la Commission que son client retirait son opposition. 

A la suite d'une demande de la Commission pour plus amples details des raisons au 
soutien de I'opposition, Me Lacoste disait dans une lettre datee du 26 novembre 1968: 

"Les opposants soutiennent que Favis d'acquisition proposee qui a ete depose 
par Smithsons Holdings Ltd., devrait etre rejete parce que la requ^rante Smithsons 
Holdings Ltd., est ni une compagnie de chemins de fer, une compagnie de pipeline 
pour denrees, une compagnie de transport par eau, une personne exploitant une 
entreprise de transport par vehicules-moteurs ou un transporteur par air, assujetti a 
la competence legislative du Parlement du Canada, et en consequence ne peut se 
prevaloir des dispositions de la Loi nationale sur les transports en ce qui regarde 
Tachat, la fusion, la consolidation etc. des entreprises de transports, et qu'en 
consequence la Commission a erre lorsqu'elle a donne ou fait donner I'avis public 
public dans la Gazette du Canada, le 29 juin 1968." 

Lors de I'audition, avant de proceder a I'audition des temoins, le president avisa les 
procureurs que la Commission avait decide d'entcndre, en premier lieu, leurs arguments 
sur cette question de droit. 

Me Lacoste, pour les opposants, a declare que Smithsons Holdings Limited "est une 
compagnie de gestion qui detient des parts" de plusieurs compagnies de transport "pour 
le benefice de ses actionnaires principaux ou son actionnaire principal, le C.P.R." II sait, 
a-t-il dit, "que le veritable adversaire ici, dans le present cas, c'est le C.P.R." 

II a ensuite dit: "Ici, c'est un subsidiaire du C.P.R. qui s'adresse a un Comite de 
camionnage. Moi, je veux necessairement etre relegue non pas a la division du chemin de 
far, nous sommes dans une cause de camionnage, il1 faut etre relegue a la division du 
camionnage." 

II apparait difficile de marier cet argument au point de droit souleve par Me Lacoste 
dans sa lettre datee du 26 novembre, alors qu'il disait, entre autres choses, que Tacquereur 
n'etait pas "une personne exploitant une entreprise de transport par vehicules- 
moteurs " 

Puis Me Lacoste, apres avoir rappele le principe de droit que "nul ne peut plaider au 
nom d'autrui" et apres avoir cite I'article 357 du Code Civil, ajoute: "Je dis done que la 
compagnie du C.P.R. acquerait indirectement des parts. Si elle le fait par I'entremise d'un 
intermediaire, il est possible aussi que I'intermediaire soit affecte. Je dis done que le texte 
dans I'avis devrait nommement etre fait au nom du C.P.R. et que le C.P.R. doit venir dire 
devant cette Commission quels sont ses subsidiaires, quelles sont ses operations 
ferroviaires et de plus, ses autres operations, en particulier, ses operations de 
camionnage." 

II terminait son argument oral en disant: "Pour cette raison, ma conclusion en 
droit, c'est que I'avis qui a ete donne est incomplet et illegal et que la personne qui est 
reellement concernee dans cette cause Test indirectement, et tel que dit dans la loi, n'est 
pas presente. En consequence, cette demande d'approbation doit etre rejet^e."

A cc sujet, je crois devoir souligner qu'en vertu de Particle 20 la Commission ne 
possedc pas le poiivoir d'approiiver une acquisition proposee. En fait, la seule 
conse(|iiencc que peut avoir un avis d'acquisition depose a la Commission, tel que requis 
par le paragrapbe (1) de Particle 20, est que la Commission a la suite d'une opposition 
faite conftumemcnt au paragraphe (3) dudit article "peut ne pas reconnaitre une 
seniblable acquisition si, de Tavis de la Commission, cette acquisition doit restreindre 
indumeiit la concurrence ou etre par ailleurs prejudiciable a I'interet public." 

Le paragraphe (2) de I'article 20 impose a la Commission Tobligation de donner ou 
de fairc donner un avis public ou tout autre avis qui lui semble raisonnable dans les 
circonstances. 

Dans le present cas, un avis juge raisonnable a ete public dans la Gazette du Canada, 
edition du 29 juin 1968, dont le premier paragraphe se lit comme suit: 

"By direction of the Canadian Transport Commission, Smithsons Holdings 
Limited, incorporated in the Province of Ontario, with Head Office at 150 
Commissioners Street, Toronto, Ontario, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian 
Pacific Railway Company, hereby gives notice, pursuant to section 20 of the 
National Transportation Act, that it proposes to acquire by purchase: 



A mon sens, un des buts de Particle 20 est qu'un avis, juge raisonnable par la 
Commission, soit donne d'une acquisition proposee, pour que les personnes mentionnees 
au paragraphe (3) dudit article 20 puissent, si elles le jugent a propos, s'opposer a une 
acquisition proposee et invoquer le motif mentionne audit paragraphe (3). 

Les opposants n'ont ni allegue dans leur opposition, ni pretendu lors de Pargument 
en droit, que Pacquereur n'etait pas, tel que mentionne dans Pavis publie dans la Gazette 
du Canada "a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Railway Company". En fait, 
c'est precisement parce qu'ils ont reconnu Pacquereur comme une filiale du C.P.R. qu'ils 
se sont opposes et s'opposent a Pacquisition. 

Le procureur de Pacquereur a aussi reconnu Pinteret du C.P.R. dans Pacquisition, et 
voici ce qu'il dit a ce sujet: 

"Or, lorsque le Legislateur a inscrit dans la loi le mot indirectement, il ne Pa pas 
mis, il ne Pa pas inclus pour les simples fins de voir un mot additionnel dans le 

texte II a voulu qu'une compagnie de chemin de fer tombant sous la 

juridiction du Parlcmcnt du Canada puisse acquerir soit directement ou, je 
comprends tres bien, je reconnais que nous aurions pu, que le C.P.R. aurait pu 
acquerir directement, ou, il nous a accorde aussi le droit de le faire indirectement. 
Or, ce mot, indirectement, c'est par Pentremisc d'une autre personne ou 
corporation. Mors, Pautre corporation dont nous nous servons, c'est la corporation 
dite Smithsons Holdings Limited. De toute fa9on, nous avons envoye Pavis public, 
rcvclant a tons que nous avions un intcret indirect \ai le controle que nous 
posscdons des actions dans Smithsons Holdings Limited."

Je suis d'avis que les opposants ont tres bien compris que I'acquereur etait una 
compagnie entierement controlee par le C.P.R. et qu'en consequence I'acquisition 
proposee par Tacquereur etait indirectement une acquisition proposee par le C.P.R. 

Me Lemieux a I'audition a declare : 

"L'association canadienne du camionnage ne peut pas, comme I'a indique Me 
Gadbois, au point de vue pratique, dire qu'elle a subi un prejudice dans la forme de

Ce que monsieur Lacoste a argumente peut :ivoir des consequences formidables 
dans la procedure pour cette Commission, dans les causes qu'elle aura a entendre 
dans I'avenir. Simplement pour me repeter, nous savons que Smithsons Holdings 
Limited est un subsidiaire du C.P.R." 

A ce sujet, je crois bon de rappeler ce que dit I'Association Canadienne du 
Camionnage Inc. dans son opposition: 

"The objection of the Canadian Trucking Associations Inc. is made on behalf of 
Sicotte Transport Limitee, H. Lapalme Limitee et Leo Tremblay Transport, and in 
support of the objection to the proposed acquisition filed by Sicotte Transport 
Limitee, H. Lapalme Limitee et Leo Tremblay Transport." 

S'il est vrai. comme I'affirme Me Lacoste dans sa lettre datee du 26 novembre 1968, 
que I'acquereur n'est pas une persorme qui, conformement a I'article 20 a I'obligation de 
dormer avis de I'acquisition proposee, le C.P.R, qui indirectement acquerrait les actions 
qu'il est propose d'acheter, est une compagnie de chemin de fer assujettie a la competence 
legislative du Parlement du Canad''. 

Meme si I'avis devait laisser planer un doute - ce que je ne puis admectre — surle 

fait que c'est le C.P.R. qui se proposait d'acquerir indirectement .la reconnaissance 

par les opposants (aussi bien que Pacquereur) de I'interet du C.P.R. constitue a mon avis 
une fin de non-recevoir a leurs pretentions. 

Pour les raisons ci-dessus, j'en arrive a la conclusion que I'avis public public dans la 
Gazette du Canada en date du 29 juin 1968 est suffisant et raisonnable, que les opposants 
n'ont subi de prejudice ni en droit ni en fait du a la redaction dudit avis, et que le Comite 
des transports par chemin de fer de la Commission, en vertu des "Regies Generales de la 
Commission canadienne des Transports", est le comite qui a comme fonction et 
responsabilite d'entendre et de disposer dans le present cas des oppositions des opposants. 

Je crois utile de faire observer ici que la Regie 660 des Regies Generales de la 
Commission dit ce qui suit: 

"Aucune procedure ne sera invalide'e en raison d'une objection fondee seulement 
sur un vice de forme." 

Quant a la pretention du procureur de I'acquereur a Teffet que Particle 20 
donnerait aux compagnies de chemin de fer le droit d'acquerir, directement ou 
indirectement, un interet dans les affaires de toute personne engagee dans des operations

de transport, je soumets que Tarticle 20, en soi, n'accorde pas un tel droit. II impose a 
una personne visee au paragraphe (1) Tobligation de donner avis a la Commission d'une 
acquisition proposee. C'est ailleurs qu'il faut chercher le fondement juridique du droit 
d'acquerir. Tout doute a ce sujet disparait a la lecture du paragraphe (5) de Tarticle 20 qui 
se lit comme suit: 

"Rien au present article ne doit s'interpreter comme autorisant Tacquisition d*un 
interet dans une autre compagnie lorsque cette acquisition ^st interdite par quelque 
loi du Parlement du Canada." 

Ayant dispose des arguments sur la question de droit, je dois done maintenant 
considerer le merite des oppositions faites par les opposants. 

Les opposants s'opposent a Tacquisition proposee disant que dans Tinteret public 
les expediteurs doivent beneficier de deux modes de transport distincts qui se font une 
reelle concurrence, soit le camion et le rail; qu'il est impossible a I'entreprise privee du 
camionnage de faire concurrence aux chemins de fer subventionnes par TEtat; qu'une 
partie importante de Tentreprise du transport routier est la propriete, ou est controlee, 
directement ou indirectement, par les deux principales compagnies de chemin de fer, 
contrairement a la politique etablie a I'article 1 de la Loi nationale sur les transports; que 
I'industrie independante du transport routier n'a pas les ressources financieres du C.P.R. 
et que I'acquisition proposee facilitera I'accroissement du capital par le C.P.R. a ses filiales 
au detriment des voituriers routiers; que depuis plusieurs annees, Norman's Transfer 
Limited et Montreal-Cornwall Express Lines Limited detiennent un monopole virtuel du 
transport a Cornwall et que par leurs oppositions a des demandes de permis par d'autres 
voituriers routiers devant les regies de transport des provinces de Quebec et d'Ontario ils 
ont restreint I'acces a Cornwall a d'autres camionneurs. 

A I'enquete, le temoin Sicotte a produit un pe;rmis emis par la Regie des transports 
de la Province de Quebec restreignant ses operations Montreal-Cornwall. Le temoin 
Martin a I'audience a lu une partie de la deposition de la Province de Quebec faite, le 4 
Janvier 1961, a la Commission royale d'enquete sur le transport, et a declare avoir ete 
autorise par son sous-ministre a dire que c'etait la la politique de la Province de Quebec en 
matiere de transport. 

M. Roy est venu temoigner de certains tarifs entre Montreal -Cornwall, Toronto- 
Cornwall et Toronto-Montreal. II a declare que les tarifs de camionnage dans le Quebec 
sont reglementes par la Regie des transports, tandis qu'en Ontario les tarifs sont deposes. 
"Les taux doivent etre approuves," a-t-il dit "mais il n'y a pas de controle specifique. Au 
Quebec on exerce un controle." 

Le temoin, M. Archambault, directeur-executif de I'Association du Camionnage du 
Quebec Inc., a produit, comme pieces a I'appui de I'opposition, copies de resolutions ou 
declarations de I'Association du Camionnage du Quebec Inc. a I'effet que I'Association est 
opposee a I'entree des chemins de fer dans I'industrie du camionnage. Quant a la situation 
Montreal-Cornwall, le temoin declare que les membres de son Association se sont toujours

plaints du monopole qui existe entre Montreal et Cornwall. II ajoute que des entre prises 
de camionnage ont demande un permis pour cet endroit et que cela leur a ete refuse. Le 
public en general aussi se plaint. A sa connaissance, une trentaine de personnes se sent 
plaintes du monopole existant et de certains tarifs qui sont plus eleves entre Montreal et 
Cornwall comparativement a d'autres endroits pour les memes marchandises et les memes 
distances. 

Enfin, le temoin Gendreau a explique que TAssociation Canadienne du Camionnage 
Inc. s'etait toujours opposee a "I'acces par le chemin de fer sur les transports routiers", et 
plus loin il ajoute: 

"I'exploitation combinee pour les chemins de fer du transport routier et 
ferroviaire cree un monopole parce que I'accroissement de ce controle par les 
chemins de fer sera sans limite, et n'y aura plus de concurrence et ce sera contre 
I'interet public." 

Quant au reste du temoignage de M. Gendreau, je cite le resume qu*en a fait Me Lemieux 
dans sa plaidoirie: 

'*He pointed out that in the Canadian Pacific annual statement there were two 
items which could be considered as hidden subsidies: first, there were the holdings 
by CP of 5% non-cumulative preferred shares in both Smith's Transport and 
Smithsons Holdings. 



The suggestion intended to be conveyed to the Committee is that since dividend 
payments under the preferred shares were not cumulative, these shares might 
constitute a source of funds which could permit Canadian Pacific to launch a rate 
war among the trucking industry and thus cause instability in that industry." 

L'acquereur n'a pas fait entendre de temoin, mais a de'pose une serie de pieces, dont 
la piece nO 8 qui est une decision de la Regie des Transports de la Province de Quebec, en 
date du 24 avril 1958, approuvant *'the transfer of the majority of the shares of Norman's 
Transfer Ltd., Brydges Transportation Ltd. and Lawson Transport Ltd. from Norman J. 
Emblem to Smithsons Holdings Ltd." D'apres cette piece 8, il appert que I'Association 
du Camionnage du Quebec Inc. et L'Association Canadienne du Camionnage Inc., 
representees par Me Lacoste, se seraient opposees a cette acquisition et transfert. 

En vertu de I'article 20, paragraphe (3), toute personne visee (en anglais: "any 
person affected") peut s'opposer "en invoquant le motif' que I'acquisition "restreindra 
indument la concurrence ou portera autrement prejudice a I'interet public". Et au 
paragraphe (4) du me me article, il est dit: 

"Lorsqu'il est fait opposition en conformite du paragraphe (3), la Commission . . . 



b) peut ne pas reconnaitre une semblable acquisition" (dans le texte anglais: "may 
disallow any such acquisition") "si, de I'avis de la Commission, cette acquisition 

59 R.T.C.

doit restreindre indument la concurrence ou etre par ailleurs prejudiciable a 
I'interet public;" 

Ce sont la les deux seuls motifs que la Commission peut et doit considerer, et ce sontla 
aussi les seuls motifs en vertu desquels une personne visee peut s'opposer. 

On a mis en preuve que certains permis d'exploitation emis par Tautorit^ 
provinciale a des voituriers contenaient certaines restrictions, tandis que dans d'autres cas 
la regie provinciale aurait refuse a des voiiuriers routiers des permis d'exploitation. C'est 
la une discretion dont jouissent les commissions provinciales de transport en vertu de la 
Loi sur le transport par vehicule a moteur. 

On a aussi mis en preuve que des tarifs Montreal-Cornwall seraient plus eleves qu'a 
d'autres endroits. Encore la, le pouvoir de reglementer les tarifs est un pouvoir dont 
jouissent les provinces en vertu de la Loi sur le transport par ve'hicule a moteur et 
qu'exercerait apparemment la Province de Quebec d'apres le temoin Roy. De plus, aucune 
preuve n'a ete faite que par suite de I'acquisition proposee ces tarifs seraient modifies de 
quelque fa^on que ce soit ou que des tarifs seraient imposes qui pourraient restreindre la 
concurrence ou autrement porter prejudice a I'inte'ret public. 

En fait, la Commission n'a pas le pouvoir d'intervenir dans les decisions rendues en 
vertu de la Loi sur le transport par vehicule a moteur. 

Enfin, il est mis en preuve, et cela n'est pas nie, que Tacquereur possede et controle 
deja 5 1% ou plus des actions emises et en cours de Norman's Transfer Limited, de Lav^son 
Transport Limited (compagnie depuis vendue a Glengarry transport Limited) et de 
Montreal-Cornwall Express Lines Limited. Etant donne ces faits, il est difficile de 
concevoir comment I'acquisition du residu des actions emises et en cours de ces 
compagnies "restreindra indument la concurrence ou portera autrement prejudice a 
I'interet public", et a mon avis il n'y a pas de pr.euve a cet effet. 

Apres examen et etude des documents deposes et produits, ainsi que la preuve faite 
lors de I'audition, j'en arrive a la conclusion qu'il n'y a pas lieu pour la Commission de ne 
pas reconnaitre I'acquisition proposee car, a mon avis, il n'y a pas de preuve que cette 
acquisition restreindra indument la concurrence ou portera autrement prejudice a I'interet 
public.

all factors that in its opinion are relevant, including the methods of allocating 
among eligible companies the sums provided before the coming irto force of 
this section by Parliament to reimburse such companies for maintaining the

"(6) The Commission may, in calculating a normal payment under this section in 
respect of any year, deduct from such payment appropriate amounts for 
payment to any transportation company that was subject to Order No. 96300 
of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada dated November 17th, 
1958, and that is not a railway company, and may recommend payment to 
any such transportation company in respect of such year of an amount based

companies under that Order." 

AND WHEREAS provisions for equalization payments and for adjustments are 
made in subsections (4) and (5) of section 469 of the Railway Act as follows: 

"(4) When the normal payment calculated in respect of a railway company for a

the recommendation of the Commission, pay out of the Consolidated 
Revenue Fund to such railway company, at such times and by such

amount by which the normal payment calculated in respect of such railway 
company exceeds the aggregate of the amounts paid or payable to such 
railway company under sections 314E, 314G, 314J and 329 in respect of that 
year." 

"(5) The Minister of Finance on the recommendation of the Commission may

normal payments for 1968, as set out in paragraphs 2 and 3 of Order No. R— 1512 of 
the Canadian Transport Commission dated February 15, 1968.

RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 



JUDGMENT 



WOODARD, C. 

On March 13, 1968, Canadian National Railways (hereinafter referred to as the 
"Railway") applied to the Railway Transport Committee of the Canadian Transport 
Commission for authority, in respect of its Belleville Master Agency Plan, to remove 
station agents at Newcastle, Colborne, Madoc, Campbellford, Stirling, Wellington, 
Frankford, Marmora and Strathcona. On March 25, 1968, the Railway applied for the 
removal of the agent and the station building, quite independent of the Belleville plan, at 
Forfar. On July 24, 1968, the Railway advised the Committee that Forfar would be 
included under the Belleville Master Agency Plan. 

It has been the practice of the Railway, in implementing its Master Agency Plans, to 
put its plan into effect on a trial basis in an endeavour to determine that all facets of the 
operation work satisfactorily before making application for the removal of the agents 
concerned. This was done in this instance, with implementation on a trial basis in 
November 1966, at all points except Forfar. 

In May of 1968, while the Committee was still seized with the individual 
application for removal of the station agent at Forfar, it came to light that the Railway 
had transferred all the duties from the agent at that point and instituted an "on-hand" 
depot at Crosby, Ontario, at the junction of Highways 34 and 15, to handle all L.C.L. 
express freight. On directions from the Committee the Railway restored normal services 
to Forfar on May 16th. Following its letter of July 24, 1968, advising the Committee that 
Forfar would be included in the Belleville Master Agency Plan, the Railway again 
removed the services from the agency at Forfar and set up the on-hand depot at Crosby. 
Once again, after numerous protests from sliippers and residents in the area the 
Committee directed the Railway to return the L.C.L. Freight and Express work to the 
agent at Forfar pending the hearing into the Belleville Master Agency Plan. 

The plan in its entire concept was investigated by a District Inspector of the 
Committee, and his report is on file. Following analysis of his report the matter was set 
down for hearing, and heard in Belleville on December 18th and 19th, 1968. 

At the outset of the hearing. Counsel for the Railway requested the Committee's 
approval to amend its application to provide for the removal of the station buildings at all 



59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 3 



FEBRUARY 1969 



points including Forfar, but with the exception of Campbellford, because the station 
building at Campbellford will be required in its present location as an on-hand depot. 

Counsel for the Railway pointed out that no objection had been filed by any 
parties with respect to the removal of agents at Campbellford, Strathcona, Wellington, 
Colbome, Frankford, Newcastle and Stirling. Complaints had been filed with respect to 
Madoc by Stoklosar Marble Quarries, Canadian Talc Industries Ltd. and by the Village of 
Madoc. Witli respect to Marmora, objections had been filed by the Village of Marmora, the 
Village of Deloro, the Townships of Marmora and Lake, and the County of Hastings. With 
respect to Forfar, objections were received from the Township of Bastard and Burgess, 
and from V.M. Baker. 

It might be well to note at this time that no representations were made at the 
hearing by the Village of Madoc. 

Description of Proposed Master Agency Plan: 

Counsel for the Railway called one witness, Mr. H. J. Fast, Manager of the Rideau 
Area, who gave in full detail a description of the proposed plan and the reasons therefor. 

The principal reasons for such a plan are, to place the Railway in a competitive 
position with other transport by improving service to customers, centralizing the 
necessary documentation processes and to elimiinate positions within the Master Agency 
area which in the opinion of management were redundant, due to changes in train 
operation. 

The function of the Belleville Master Agency Plan is to handle efficiently, and 
where possible to integrate rail services, which include carload traffic, express/L.C.L. 
freight traffic and passenger traffic and, in addition although not so directly related, 
telecommunications. 

Under the plan there is, as its operational head, a terminal traffic manager with 
headquarters in Belleville, supported by a staff comprising shed employees, office staff 
handling all documentation and accounting, and information officers to supply customers 
with answers to questions asked regarding any of the Railway's services. 

In nine of the ten stations involved the Railway has removed from the station 
agents all the work formerly performed by them, i.e. all billing and accounting is now 
done in the Belleville office, and the handling of express and L.C.L. traffic has been 
turned over to local business men (on-hand agents) who maintain suitable quarters and 
facilities for this purpose. As mentioned previously, the station agent at Forfar is doing 
the work of an on-hand agent in the station building. 

In the field to cover the ten stations involved in this application, there is one 
customer service representative stationed at Belleville who on a scheduled basis visits the 
communities where railway customers are located, dealing directly with the on-hand 
agents, railway agents and customers. Each of these places maintains a logbook and on his 

59 RT.C. 



-51- 



PAMPHLET NO. 3

arrival the customer service representative checks the logbook to see what problems have 
arisen and what services require attention. 

In the field of freight carload services, there is located at Belleville a branch 
manager, freight sales, a freight sales representative and other staff. This group concerns 
itself with all phases of carload traffic, i.e. solicitation, sales and service, car tracing, etc. 

To provide ready communication insofar as all facets of the operation are 
concerned, all customers in the Master Agency area can make use of a Zenith telephone 
number which will connect them with the switchboard in the Belleville office; the 
operator there will connect the party with the appropriate department where staff is 
available to handle all requests for information, complaints, passenger train tickets or 
reservations or telecommunication matters. Mr. Fast admitted that there had been 
bottlenecks develop in the proper monitoring of incoming calls and in connecting the 
caller with the proper information source; however, he stated that Bell Telephone was 
installing another line to overcome this problem and felt safe that this installation would 
cure this particular situation. 

The Zenith number, which is free to all customers provides 24-hour a day, 
seven-days a week service for passenger or telecommunications matters. On carload 
freight matters the customer can contact for semce between midnight and 8:00 a.m., and 
from 8:30 ajn. to 5:00 pjn., Monday to Friday. Saturday service is from 8:30 a.m. to 
5:00 p.m., with no service on Sunday. Services in respect of Express and L.C.L. is 
available from 8:00 a jn. until 9:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and on Saturday only from 
9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. 

While Mr. Fast enlarged greatly on the above description of the services provided 
under the plan, for the purposes of this Judgment, I shall not go into any greater detail. 

Opposition to the Application: 

Objections from tlie Village of Marmora, as stated earlier, were supported by other 
municipalities, townships and the County of Hastings and varied from the inadequacies of 
the on-hand location, the delay in receiving signed bills of lading, the loss of the service 
by which money could be sent or received by telecommunications through the agent, to 
the fact that Marmora was a high revenue station, as shown in an exhibit filed by the 
Railway. 

The Village of Forfar objected to the removal of its agent on the grounds of 
inconvenience, not only to the inhabitants of Forfar, but to shippers in many other 
communities in the surrounding area. While an on-hand agency at Crosby at the junction 
of two highways might better serve the purpose of the Railway, it is apparent that the 
location is not the most convenient for the patrons. This is borne out by a considerable 
number of protests on file with the Committee from shippers and municipalities. A 
matter of great concern was the fact that, while the area is served by a rural telephone 
service which is adequate for local needs, it is not a service which lends itself to the use of 

59 R.T.C.

a Zenilh number to a point as far removed as Belleville. It was also pointed out in their 
objections and in argument by Counsel representing the Township of Bastard and Burgess 
on behalf of Forfar, that the area being over one hundred miles from Belleville could not 
be adequately seized by one customer service representative visiting the area once a week. 

As mentioned earlier in this Judgment, objections had been filed with respect to the 
agency at Madoc, but no representations of any kind were made at the hearing. 

Findings and Conclusions: 

With respect to opposition from the Village of Marmora (and others in support ^ 
thereof) I must conclude that in the main, the opposition was to change, rather than the | 
reality of a deteriorating service. While I agree that Marmora is a high revenue station, it 
was brought out in evidence that almost all of the revenue was from carload freight which 
does not necessarily require the services of an agent. A review of all the evidence satisfies 
me that facilities are quite adequate. They are located in quarters adjacent to a feed mill 
which is owned by the incumbent Railway Agent v/ho, in the event of closure of the 
agency, intends to retain the on-hand depot to be operated by himself or a member of his 
family. Insofar as money transactions by telecommunications are concerned, it is 
conceded that this service will disappear under a Master Agency Plan. However, I do not 
consider that the use of this service is so widespread that the granting or refusal of the 
application should hinge upon it. 

Of considerable concern to the Committee in plans such as this is the travelling 
required by Customer Service Representatives in addition to service calls required. I am of 
the opinion that the Belleville Master Agency Plan lends itself to a viable operation with 
the minimum of mileage required to travel when all stations with the exception of Forfar 
are considered. To my mind to include Forfar and area in the proposed plan is to result in 
a plan which, while no doubt operable, would be so only to the detriment of the other 
communities involved therein. I am also of the view that the Zenith telephone service is 
of httle value to residents of the Forfar area when one considers the inadequacies of the 
existing rural telephone system. 

Insofar as opposition raised on behalf of the Madoc agency, since no representa- 
tions were made at the hearing, though due notice was given of the hearing to the 
opposing parties, I can only conclude that said opposition was only of a token nature. 

I am satisfied that employees affected by the granting of the application will be 
adequately protected under the terms of their Union's special and collective agreements 
and by existing vacancies on the Rideau Area of the railway. 

Taking into consideration the requested amendment to the original application as 
made at the outset of the hearing, I would grant the application of Canadian National 
Railways to remove the agents and remove or dispose of the station buildings at 
Newcastle, Colborne, Madoc, Stirling, Wellington, Frankford, Marmora and Strathcona,

and to remove the agent at Campbellford. 1 would dismiss the application of Canadian 
National Railways to remove the agent and remove or dispose of the station building at 
Forfar, for the reasons stated above. 

An Order will issue accordingly.

JONES, Chairman: 

I agree with the decision of Commissioner Woodard that Canadian National be 
authorized to remove the agents and remove or dispose of the station buildings at 
Newcastle, Colborne, Madoc, Stirling, Wellington, Frankford, Marmora and Strathcona 
and to remove the agent at Campbellford, and with the reasons he has given for his 
decision. 

I also agree that the appUcation should be dismissed in respect of the agent and 
station buildings at Forfar, and wish to make some additional observations on this aspect 
of the case. 

Applications to remove station agents and to remove or dispose of station buildings 
are governed by Section 182 of the Railway Act which prohibits the removal, closing or 
abandonment of any station without leave of the Commission and by General Order No. 
0—2 of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada, which prescribes the 
procedure to be followed by railway companies intending to close stations by reason of 
removal of the agent. (General Order No. 0-2 still has effect by reason of Section 90 of 
the National Transportation Act). 

On March 25, 1968, Canadian National applied to the Commission, pursuant to 
General Order No. 0-2, for authority to remove the station agent and station buildings at 
Forfar and to appoint an on-hand representative. 

Tliis application was made in respect of Forfar alone, independent of the proposed 
Master Agency at Belleville. On May 15, 1968, while its application was still under 
investigation by the Committee, Canadian National transferred the agency work and 
traffic from Forfar station to an on-hand depot at Crosby. This action was taken without 
notice to or leave from the Committee. 

The Committee immediately ordered the restoration of the Forfar agency and this 
was done by the next day, May 16. 

On July 24, 1968, Canadian National applied to have Forfar included in the 
Belleville Master Agency in respect of which an application for approval had been made 
to the Commission on March 13, 1968. This action would have had the effect of closing 
Forfar station if the Committee approved it as part of the Master Agency and would 
make it unnecessary for Canadian National to proceed further with its application of 
March 25. 

On August 13 and 14, 1968, the Committee received complaints about the service 
at Forfar from which it developed that Canadian National had again transferred the 
Forfar agency work and traffic from the station to an on-hand depot at nearby Crosby. 
This was done again without notice to or leave from the Committee. 

The Committee again directed Canadian National to restore the agency at Forfar. 

One result of these actions by Canadian National was to arouse strong protests on 
the part of Forfar residents against the closing of their station, even as part of the 

59 R.T.C. 



-55 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 3 



FEBRUARY 1969 



Belleville Master Agency Plan, an attitude with which I have considerable sympathy in 
view of all that happened. 

In cases of proposed station closings, the Committee weighs the convenience to the 
community in continuing the station against the convenience to the railway in closing it, 
and in so doing takes into account all relevant matters including the standard of service 
the community is entitled to expect, as well as the revenue position of the railway. To 
permit Canadian National to close Forfar station on the basis of the inadequate 
alternative service proposed, would in my opinion, work an injustice on the community 
presently serviced by Forfar station and for that reason should not be allowed. 

I must add that the Committee's investigation of the transfer of the Forfar agency 
on two occasions satisfies me that Canadian National was perhaps over anxious in its 
attempt to implement the Master Agency Plan on a trial basis without realizing that the 
changes this brouglit about were so far-reaching as to require leave from the Committee. 
There is no evidence whatever that the railway was attempting to close the station 
without lawful authority. 

Commissioner W. R. Irwin sat with Commissioner Woodard and myself through the 
hearing in Belleville and heard all the evidence presented thereat. Prior to the writing of 
this Judgment, Commissioner Irwin passed away following a short illness. We liave no 
reason to believe that he would not have concurred in our decision. Of necessity, this 
Judgment can only be signed by Commissioner Woodard and me who, under Section 12 
of The Railway Act, constitute a quorum.

RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 
JUDGMENT 

WOODARD, C. 

The application from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (hereinafter referred* 
to as the "Railway") to remove twenty (20) agents and one (1) caretaker on its Kootenay 
Division coincidental with the inauguration of a Customer Service Centre at Nelson, is 
dated November 15, 1968. At the same time the Railway furnished copies of its 

5^ R.T.C. 



~ 199- 



PAMPHLET NO. 10 



MAY 1969 



application to municipalities and industries concerned, to Members of Parliament and to 
Members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. With the application furnished 
to tlie above was advice that any submissions, either supporting or opposing the proposed 
Customer Service Centre Plan, should be sent to the Secretary of the Railway Transport 
Committee, Canadian Transport Commission, Ottawa; and a request that copies of any 
such submissions be sent to the Railway. 

During the two or three months immediately following the date of application, a 
number of submissions were received by the Railway Transport Committee, a few of 
which registered objection to the Railway proposal, but a greater number were in support 
of, or registered no objection to the plan as submitted. 

In December 1968, the Railway, for the purpose of disseminating information to 
their customers regarding the proposed plan, sent a team of officers into the area. 
Twenty-nine meetings were held at different locations during the period December 9, 
1968, to February 6, 1969. During this time over 200 letters of explanation were sent to 
carload and Canadian Pacific Merchandise Services customers in the area. Advertisements 
were also placed in the daily and weekly newspapers serving the Kootenays. 

The District Inspector at Vancouver was directed by this Committee to conduct a 
review by way of meetings with local authorities and shippers, to determine the effect on 
municipalities and railway patrons of implementing such a plan. The Inspector completed 
his survey in January 1969, and his report is on file. 

On February 10, 1969, the Railway Transport Committee sent to all interested 
parties shown on its files, and to all others who had received a copy of the Railway's 
application, notice that a public hearing would be held on Tuesday, March 4, 1969, in the 
Court House, Nelson, British Columbia, at 10.00 A.M. 

The hearing was held at that time and on that date, with the Honourable J.W. 
Pickersgill, President, Canadian Transport Commission, presiding. 

Description of Proposed Customer Service Plan: 

The plan proposed for the Kootenay Division is, essentially, identical to plans 
established at Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Regina and the Trenton 
Division. The basic principle is the estabhshment of a Customer Service Centre at a 
central point (in this case Nelson), with which all patrons of the Railway can 
communicate by means of a toll-free Zenith telephone number. The switchboard at the 
centre would be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and would place with various 
experts in their Held, calls relating to rate matters, ordering or placing of cars, 
infomiation re shipments, telegraph messages, train, hotel or steamship reservations, etc. 
All waybilling and accounting now being done by agents would be done by staff at the 
Customer Service Centre. 

Express, L.C.L. and less-than-trailerload traffic is now being handled by truck on 
til': Kootenay Division. This method of handling will continue, but billing and collecting 

59 R.T.C. 



- 200 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 10 



MAY 1969 



will now be done tlirougli the Customer Service Centre. The trucking service, whether it 
be Canadian Pacific Merchandise Services, contract or interHne carrier, will provide its 
own staff and facilities for shipments for delivery, and local pick-up and delivery service, 
where now provided, will be continued. 

For the purpose of providing personal contact with its customers, the Railway 
proposes to appoint 4 mobile supervisors to be domiciled and to work out of Fernie, 
Cranbrook, Nelson and Grand Forks, each to be assigned to specific routes to be covered 
on specific days. Their duties will be generally to contact customers, adjust complaints 
and to see that all customers are receiving satisfactory attention in matters of 
merchandise or carload traffic, or any other railway service requested. While the mileage 
to be travelled by these men is considerable, the Railway is confident that travelling time 
will not preclude their carrying out their contact work, but assured the Committee that if 
it were found that the customers were not being adequately served, immediate steps 
would be taken to add to the number of mobile supervisors. 

Opposition to the Application: 

From the report of the Committee's District Inspector, and from letters on file with 
the Committee, it is apparent that much of the opposition to the Railway's proposal was 
withdrawn after the team of officers had explained the program and the changes 
proposed to customers and municipalities in the area. However, at the hearing, some 
objections were raised and have been considered. 

Mr. T.M. Little, Mayor of Castelgar, presented a brief which, to summarize, 
expressed a fear that the facelessness of the method of business dealings, by using 
telephone rather than personal contact, would affect the confidence that customers now 
have in dealing with agents. His brief expressed concern that the proposal would have an 
adverse effect on the development of the Kootenays and the Town of Castelgar in 
particular. The brief made two major suggestions; firstly, that it would be in the public 
interest to phase out the removal of the 20 agents over a period of time rather than 
removing them all at once, and secondly, that the Railway, if the plan is approved, should 
provide more than the proposed 4 mobile supervisors to adequately service the area. 

Mr. J.G. McMynn, Vice-President of Boundary Sawmills and Mayor of the 
Corporation of the Village of Midway, presented a brief on behalf of Midway. Tliis brief 
dealt primarily with concern that the handling of waybills for shipments from Boundary 
Sawmills would be delayed by the removal of the agent from Midway. Concern was also 
registered that the mobile supervisor would be unable to devote the required time to 
customers' problems due to excessive miles to travel. 

Mr. Carl Loeblich, Mayor of Kinnaird, stated that it was the decision of his Town 
Council not to oppose the application as it affected no industry in the Town. 

Mr. Gordon, of the Town of Kinnaird, had no comments, but only requested that 
he be recorded as an interested observer.

PAMPHLFT NO. 10 



MAY 1969 



Mr. Randolph Harding, M.P. for Kootenay West, who was in the audience, asked 
peniiission to comment on the application, and mentioned that liis personal survey of the 
municipahlies and regional districts indicated Uttle opposition to the Railway's proposal. 
He expressed the hope that the present application was not the first step towards 
abandonment of the railway lines. 

Conclusions: 

I am satisfied that the Railway has done an excellent job in informing and 
educating its customers concerning the changes to be expected should this application be 
granted. 

Being satisfied tiiat the proposed Company Service Centre Plan is essentially the 
same as the number of other plans which the Committee has earlier approved and which, 
from our records are functioning satisfactorily, I would grant the application of the 
Canadian Pacific Railway Company. 

In reaching this conclusion, I must mention my continuing concern, as expressed in 
earlier Judgments, of the role played by Mobile Supervisors in the proposed Plan. It is 
apparent to me that to ensure the proper functioning of the Plan the Mobile Supervisors 
should not be assigned to territories too large for them to cover easily and still perform 
their duties of proper customer contact and adequate service. In this context, I am 
particularly concerned that the misgivings expressed by the representatives of Castlegar 
and Midway should be kept in mind by the Railway. I would again remind the Railway of 
its assurance to the Committee that this portion of the proposed Plan will be kept under 
constant review, to ensure adequate service to the users of the Railway's facilities. 

1 would grant the application of Canadian Pacific Railway Company to remove 
twenty (20) agents and one (1) caretaker on its Kootenay Division, and to substitute 
therefor the Customer Service Centre Plan comprised in the application, as ampHfied at 
the hearing in Nelson. 

An Order will issue accordingly.

The abolition of these positions is brought about by the proposed establishment of 
a customer service centre at Ottawa. In its application, the railway contends that under 
existing conditions, the continued immobility of railway agents curtails their effectiveness 
and that present traffic and marketing conditions make it necessary to improve 
communications through centralization in order to offer a better service to its customers.

The application indicates that employees affected by the railway's proposal will be 
offered positions of mobile supervisors or other positions created within the Centre and 
that, in this regard, collective agreements dated October 15, 1967 between the Company 
and The Transportation-Communication Employees Union and February 16, 1968, 
between the Company and The Brotherhood of Railway, Airlines and Steamship Clerks 
have been filed with the Committee. 

In order to inform the public of its plan, the railway undertook an extensive 
programme of distribution of explanatory literature to the shippers and householders and 
organized meetings between its representatives and Municipal Officials and other 
interested parties to answer all questions concerning this proposal. 

The application also outlines the various functions of the proposed centre, the 
location of offices and the kind of personnel to be assigned to the new service. 

Copies of the application were sent to all municipalities located in this territory and 
members of Parliament and of the Legislature concerned. 

An investigation was carried out by operating inspectors of the Railway Transport 
Committee who reported that considering the extent of the plan, there was very little 
opposition to the railway's proposal. There was, however, some criticism of the railway's 
methods and requests that some of the present facilities be retained. A public hearing was 
held at Ottawa on May 27, 1969. At this hearing, Mr. L.R. Smith, Vice-President, Eastern 
Region of the Canadian Pacific Railway, referred to the customer service centres at 
Lethbridge and Trenton that have been in operation for some time and which have 
permitted the railway to gain considerable experience and assurance of their customers' 
support for what the railway is considering improved services. 

Mr. L.G. Savage, Manager of Systems and Procedures, stated that the purpose of the 
customer service centre project was "to give equal or better service to the public and to 
obtain better utilization of our manpower and resources." 

Mr. Savage gave an outline of the studies required relative to such a project and 
explained the functioning of the centre by means of the Zenith telephone, the mobile 
supervisors, the internal equipment and a computer which permit to offer service 24 
hours a day and 7 days a week. 

Mr. J.B. Gillespie, Supervisor Industrial Engineering, explained how this new 
concept of handling railway business has become possible through improvements in Bell 
Telephone service, mobile forces and internal telecommunications. He described in detail 
how the service that will be provided for railway customers will operate with the Zenith 
telephone and mobile supervisors as applied to all transportation and communication 
transactions. 

At points where express service is to be withdrawn, Mr. Gillespie explained that 
there is alternate highway service and that these points are near locations that will be 
served by the customer service centre.

No evidence was presented in opposition to the railway's application. Mr. Leslie 
Price, Plant Superintendent of Hilton Mine, asked questions concerning the competence 
of the personnel that will do the work presently done by the station agent and the 
availability of this personnel at all times. Mr. Price also enquired as to the possibility of 
delays to car shipments and the flexibility of the proposed system to handle increased 
traffic. He was given the assurance that under the new system, the railway would be much 
better prepared to provide a uniform and consistent quality of service and in a better 
position to deal quickly with any problem that may arise. 

Mr. Roland Godin, M.P. for Portneuf, and Mr. Rene Matte, M.P. for Champlain, 
were present at the hearing and were interested in knowing what happens to the station 
agents displaced by the implementation of the customer service centre. 

Counsel for the Railway explained that those employees could exercise their 
seniority within the seniority district or if close to retirement age, may elect to take early 
retirement. Those employees required to move to a new location would not incur 
out-of-pocket expenses as agreements recognize the payment of such expenses. 

Mr. Gillespie testified to the effect that most of the employees affected by the 
implementation of the customer service centre would find work on the railway either by 
exercising their seniority rights or accepting other assignments within the centre and it 
was estimated that not more than five employees might be without a job as a result of the 
change. 

Evidence was given that objections and exceptions to the project have been 
answered to the satisfaction of the objectors. 

The estabhshment of a customer service centre at Ottawa is not a new experience 
for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company as similar centres have been in operation for 
some time at other locations. The fact that no complaints are received with respect to 
these centres is an indication that they are operating to the satisfaction of the customers 
of the railway. 

In view of the explanations given by the Railway, its assurance that the proposed 
service will be equal or better than the existing one and the provisions made with respect 
to the displaced employees of the Company, I would approve the removal of 30 agents 
and 12 caretakers from the following locations on the Smiths Falls Division of the 
Canadian Pacific Railway Company.

JUGEMENT 

DUMONTIER, commissaire. 

La demande de la Compagnie de chemin de fer du Pacifique-Canadien en vue de 
I'abolition de trente postes de chef de gare et de douze postes de gardien a ete presentee 
le 4 novembre 1968. 

L'abohtion de ces positions est occasionnee par le projet d'etablissement d'un 
centre de service a la clientele, a Ottawa. Dans sa demande, le chemin de fer soutient que 
dans les conditions existantes, Timmobilite continue des chefs de gare diminue leur 
efficacite et que le trafic actuel et les conditions du marche exigent TameHoration des 
communications par la centralisation de fa9on a offrir un meilleur service a la cHentele. 

La demande indique qu'on offrira aux employes touches par la proposition du 
chemin de fer des postes de surveillants itinerants ou autres positions creees au sein du

centre et que, a ce sujet, les conventions collectives du 15 octobre 1967, passees entre la 
compagnie et TUnion des employes des transports et des communications, et du 16 
fevrier 1968, passees entre la compagnie et la Fraternite des commis de chemins de fer, de 
lignes aeriennes et de navires a vapeur, ont ete deposees au Comite. 

Afin de renseigner le public sur son projet, le chemin de fer a entrepris un vaste 
programme de distribution de brochures explicatives aux expediteurs et aux chefs de 
maison et a organise des reunions entre ses representants et les autorites municipales et 
autres interesses afin de repondre a toutes les questions relatives a ce projet. 

La demande esquisse egalement les differentes fonctions du centre projete, 
I'emplacement des bureaux et le genre de personnel a affecter au nouveau service. 

Des exemplaires de la demande ont ete envoyes a toutes les municipalites du 
territoire, ainsi qu'aux deputes federaux et provinciaux en cause. 

Les inspecteurs du service d'exploitation du Comite des transports par chemin de fer 
ont, apres enquete, fait rapport que, compte tenu de I'etendue du plan, I'opposition au 
projet du chemin de fer etait tres faible. On a cependant critique les methodes du chemin 
de fer et demande que certaines des installations actuelles soient conservees. Une audience 
publique a ete tenue a Ottawa le 17 mai 1969. A cette audience, M. L.R. Smith, 
vice-president, region de Test de la Compagnie de chemin de fer du Pacifique-Canadien, a 
mentionne les centres de service a la clientele de Lethbridge et de Trenton qui 
fonctionnent depuis quelque temps et qui ont permis au chemin de fer d'acquerir 
beaucoup d'experience et I'assurance de I'appui de sa clientele au sujet de ce qu'il 
considere comme une amelioration du service. 

M. L.G. Savage, gerant des systemes et des procedures, a declare que le but du 
projet d'etablissement d'un centre de service a la clientele etait de "donner un service egal 
ou meilleur au public et d'obtenir une meilleure utilisation de notre main-d'ceuvre et de 
nos ressources". 

M. Savage a donne une esquisse des etudes qu'exige un tel projet et a explique le 
fonctionnement du centre au moyen du telephone Zenith, des surveillants itinerants, du 
materiel interne et d'un ordinateur qui permet d'offrir un service de 24 heures sur 24 et 
de 7 jours par semaine. 

M. J.B. Gillespie, surveillant du genie industriel, a explique comment cette nouvelle 
conception du traitement des affaires ferroviaires a ete rendue possible par les 
ameliorations apportees a son service par la Bell Telephone, par I'emploi de personnel 
itinerant et par des telecommunications internes. 11 a decrit en detail comment le service 
qui sera assure a la clientele du chemin de fer fonctionnera au moyen du telephone Zenith 
et des surveillants itinerants dans son application a toutes les operations de transport et de 
communication. 

Dans le cas des points ou le service de messageries sera discontinue, M. Gillespie a 
explique qu'il y existe un autre service, par voie routiere, et que ces points se trouvent 
pres d'endroits qui seront desservis par le centre de service a la clientele.

Aucune deposition s'opposant a la demande du chemin de fer n'a ete faite. M. 
Leslie Price, surintendant de la mine Hilton, a pose des questions au sujet de la 
competence du personnel qui fera le travail actuellement accompli par le chef de gare et 
de la disponibilite de ce personnel en tout temps. M. Price s'est egalement informe de la 
possibilite de retards dans les expeditions de wagons et de la souplesse du systeme projete 
pour faire face a I'augmentation du trafic. On lui a assure que sous le nouveau regime, le 
chemin de fer serait mieux en mesure d'assurer un service de qualite uniforme et 
consistante et de s'occuper rapidement de tout probleme qui pourrait surgir. 

M. Roland Godin, depute de Portneuf, et M. Rene Matte, depute de Champlain, 
etaient presents a I'audience et voulaient savoir ce qu'il adviendra des chefs de gare 
evinces par suite de I'etablissement du centre de service a la clientele. 

L'avocat du chemin de fer a explique que ces employes pourront exercer leur droit 
d'anciennete dans le district d'anciennete ou s'ils sont a la veille d'atteindre I'age de la 
retraite, prendre celle-ci plus tot. Les employes qui devront demenager a un autre endroit 
n'auront pas a faire de debourses vu que les conventions prevoient le paiement de ces 
depenses. 

M. Gillespie a declare, dans sa deposition, que la plupart des employes touches par 
I'etablissement du centre de service a la clientele trouveront du travail sur le chemin de fer 
soit en exer9ant leurs droits d'anciennete, soit en acceptant un poste au centre; il estime 
qu'au plus cinq employes se trouveront peut-etre sans travail a la suite du changement. 

Dans les depositions, on a repondu aux objections au projet a la satisfaction des 
opposants. 

L'etablissement d'un centre de service a la clientele a Ottawa n'est pas quelque 
chose de nouveau pour la Compagnie de chemin de fer du Pacifique-Canadien, puisque 
d'autres centres semblables existent ailleurs depuis quelque temps. Le fait qu'aucune 
plainte n'ait ete re9ue au sujet de ces centres est un signe qu'ils fonctiorment a la 
satisfaction de la clientele du chemin de fer. 

Vu les explications que le chemin de fer a fournies et I'assurance qu'il a donnee que 
le service projete sera egal a celui qui est assure ou meilleur et vu les dispositions prises a 
regard des employes deplaces de la compagnie, j'approuve I'abolition de 30 postes d'agent 
de gare et de 12 postes de gardien dans la division de Smiths Falls de la Compagnie de 
chemin de fer du Pacifique-Canadien, soit aux endroits suivants:

REASONS FOR ORDER 

BY THE RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE: 

These reasons are concerned with the regulations respecting the costing principles 
and techniques of the railways subject to the jurisdiction of the Canadian Transport 
Commission (the "Commission"), prescribed pursuant to section 387B of the Railway 
Act. 

To afford a better understanding of the sequence of events leading up to the 
recently concluded hearing, the following summary is provided: 

The National Transportation Act, assented to February 9, 1967, enunciates the 
National Transportation PoHcy and, inter alia, enacts new provisions for the Railway Act.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The National Transportation Act is divided into several parts and provision is made 
therein that such parts or specific sections shall come into force upon proclamation. The 
Commission itself was brought into being on September 19, 1967, by the proclamation of 
Part I and the greater part of Part VI. 

Part V, applying to railways, contains extensive amendments to the Railway Act 
and was proclaimed in effect March 23, 1967, and on that date became the administrative 
responsibility of the former Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada in accordance 
with section 92 of the National Transportation Act: 

"92. If Parts II, III and V or any of those Parts come into force before the day 
that Part I comes into force, a reference in that Part that is so in force to the 
Canadian Transport Commission shall be deemed, until Part I comes into force, to 
be a reference to the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada." 

Among the provisions enacted by Part V was the requirement of section 387B of 
the amended Railway Act that the items and factors relevant in the determination of 
costs for any of the purposes of that Act be prescribed by regulation. It was under this 
statutory requirement that the Board prescribed the regulations set out in its Order No. 
123994 issued April 5, 1967 ("the Board's Cost Order"). 

On the same day that Part V of the National Transportation Act was proclaimed, 
i.e., March 23, 1967, Order-in-Council P.C. 1967-570, made pursuant to section 314G of 
the Railway Act, designated certain branch lines to continue to be operated until at least 
January 1, 1975. On the same date, Order-in-Council P.C. 1967-569 (since replaced by 
P.C. 1968-1874) prescribed regulations respecting appHcations for abandonment of lines 
of railway under section 168 of the Railway Act other than Hnes referred to in P.C. 
1967-570. In brief, the aforesaid regulations apphed only to applications pending before 
the Board on the date of issuance of P.C. 1967-569. 

On the date of issue of Order-in-Council P.C. 1967-569 there were 53 appHcations 
for branch line abandonments pending before the Board, 46 of which lines were in 
Western Canada. Of them, 6 had been heard but decisions thereon not rendered. None of 
these pending applications involved guaranteed lines as defined in P.C. 1967-570. 

Since the regulations under P.C. 1967-569 specified that the Board, in respect of 
such applications, shall consider the matters referred to in section 314C (3) of the 
Railway Act and the provisions of that section involved the computation of actual loss 
and other factors and because of the requirements of sections 334 and 336 of the 
Railway Act, the necessity for costing formulae was apparent and the Board's Cost Order 
was deemed necessary. 

On August 1, 1967, the Governments of the Provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and 
Saskatchewan, under the provisions of section 53 of the Railway Act, petitioned the 
Governor-in-Council to rescind the Order; to direct that no further Order as to costing or 
any proceedings thereunder be undertaken until the Commission, after full and complete 
public hearings, shall have promulgated a new Order; or to require, if the Order be

maintained, that it not apply to important issues of public interest and any abandonment 
applications affecting the Prairie Provinces. 

The appeal was dismissed by Order-in-Council P.C. 1967-2063, dated October 31, 
1967, which recited the main grounds of appeal and made extensive comments thereon. 
The reasons for the dismissal of the appeal are discussed extensively later in these reasons, 
but in summary they were: 

1. The bringing into force of Part V of the Act required the Board to prescribe 
costing regulations. 

2. The Board was not required to hold hearings respecting the initial establishment 
of the said regulations, but provision is made in the Railway Act for hearings 
upon any amendment proposed thereto, which procedure the appellants did not 
elect to follow. 

3. The regulations made by the Order are valid regulations and not contrary to the 
spirit of the amended Railway Act, and that the Board has complied with the 
relevant provisions of the Act. 

On August 8, 1967, the Board convened a prehearing conference in the City of 
Winnipeg to consider plans for hearing of the pending applications for abandonment of 
branch lines. Opposition was voiced to the Board conducting any abandonment 
proceedings in view of the impending creation of the Commission. 

Upon the Commission's formation on September 19, 1967, it decided to implement 
an undertaking of the Minister of Transport and hold a public hearing upon the 
formulation of costing regulations, and also decided that the services of a consultant be 
secured in order to obtain expert and independent advice. 

EBS Management Consultants, Inc. ("EBS") of Washington, D.C., was retained and 
its then Managing Director (now Vice-President), W. B. Saunders, with supporting staff, 
became associated with the Railway Transport Committee (the "Committee") of the 
Commission in this work. 

Pursuant to section 17 of the National Transportation Act, and the General Rules 
of the Commission, the Committee undertook the responsibility for a full Inquiry into 
railway costs, to include a public hearing at an appropriate stage. 

Late in November 1967, the Committee met informally with representatives of 
Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways and with representatives of the 
Governments of the Provinces, the Western grain trade, the Canadian Trucking 
Associations, and other interested parties, to discuss procedure during the Inquiry and to 
receive suggestions as to the manner in which its work might be completed. It was also 
the purpose of these meetings to review the proposed timetable because at this time the 
Committee foresaw the Inquiry being completed some time during the winter of 1968. 

During December 1967 and January 1968, there was continuous consultation 
between the Committee and Mr. Saunders and his associates, and with representatives of

the various parties who had indicated their intention of participating in the Inquiry. In 
this period, the procedure which the Committee has followed in the Inquiry was evolved. 

Recognizing the complexity of the problem the Committee had before it, and the 
effect its Order would have in subsequent proceedings under the Railway Act where 
railway costs are a factor, the Committee assigned to Mr. Saunders the task of assembling 
an informal committee of cost experts, including experts on the staff of the Committee 
and the railways, the Governments of the Provinces and experts working with the grain 
trade, the trucking industry and other interested groups. This group of experts became 
known as the technical committee. These reasons would be incomplete without some 
recognition of the value and effectiveness of the work of the people who formed the 
technical committee and helped complete its task. Their names and the organizations 
they represented are accordingly listed in Appendix I to these reasons. 

The technical committee had two main objectives, first to assist in the provision of 
all the working data relating to railway costs that were both relevant and available and, 
second, to define for the Railway Transport Committee the issues, including those on 
which there was agreement, those on which it was agreed further work or study was 
required, and those on which there was no agreement. An essential ingredient of this 
process was the willingness of Canadian National and Canadian Pacific to make both their 
technical staff and their store of information concerning methods of calculating and 
allocating railway costs available to Mr. Saunders on the same unrestricted basis as they 
were available to the Committee. Much important information was also made available to 
the parties to the proceedings. 

Because of the very considerable public interest that had arisen over questions 
involving railway costs, and because of its desire to receive submissions from all interested 
persons, the Committee decided to give the Inquiry the widest possible notice. 
Accordingly, notice of the commencement of a public hearing on February 5, 1968, at 
Ottawa concerning regulations respecting costs for the purposes of sections 314A to 
314J, 317, 329, 334, 336, 387A and 387B of the Railway Act was pubUshed in January 
1968. The notice was sent by mail to some 500 persons and organizations including the 
Attorneys-General of the Provinces, departments of the Federal, Provincial and Municipal 
governments, interested Members of Parliament, the Railway Association of Canada and 
all its member companies, and to representatives of the grain trade, the trucking, air and 
maritime industries, transportation associations, including the Maritimes Transportation 
Commission, the railway unions, chambers of commerce, universities, farm organizations 
and other interested parties. The notice was published in 54 daily and weekly newspapers 
across Canada. The notice was also published in the Canada Gazette. 

The notice specified that persons wishing to be made parties in the Inquiry and to 
participate in the hearing enter appearances by February 1, 1968. 

Immediately the proceedings opened on February 5, the work program was 
announced. By this time the Committee visualized the completion of the work of the 
technical committee and the conclusion of the public hearing by June 30, 1968. The 

59 R.T.C.

AUGUST 1969 



technical committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. Saunders, began its work then and 
continued until completion by approximately June 30. During this period, the 
Committee found that the amount of work it had to do with its consultant and the 
technical committee, preparatory to the commencement of the public hearing, exceeded 
its estimate. Until June 30 Mr. Saunders, his associates and the Committee were in almost 
constant consultation with the railways, with the technical committee, and with certain 
individual parties to the Inquiry who had themselves retained expert consultants. 

Between February 5 and June 30, Mr. Saunders and his associates produced 38 
separate technical working papers with exhibits, on all important aspects of the 
development and allocation of railway costs. These were distributed to all parties, their 
experts, consultants and counsel. He also produced for the Committee his statement of 
the issues on which agreement had been reached, the issues on which it had been agreed 
that further study was required, and the issues on which there was no agreement. This 
document, referred to as the EBS Statement of Position, also stated at length and in 
detail Mr. Saunders' basic recommendations to the Railway Transport Committee as to 
the form and content of the Cost Order. 

Between June 30 and August 1 , the parties, using Mr. Saunders' material as one of 
the bases for their work, prepared and filed with the Committee their submissions. These 
dealt extensively with Mr. Saunders' recommendations and their own proposals and 
recommendations as to the form and content of the Cost Order. Submissions of this 
nature were received from: 

Canadian National Railways; 

Canadian Pacific Railway Company; 

Wabush Mines Arnaud Railway Company and Wabush Lake Railway Company 
Limited; 

The Manitoba Branch Lines Association; 
Canadian Trucking Associations Inc.; 

Canadian Co-operative Wheat Producers Limited, representing the 160,000 farmer 
members of the Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan Wheat Pools; 

United Grain Growers Ltd.; 

The Governments of the Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, 
Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes Transportation Commission 
representing the Governments of the Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, 
Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. 

On September 10, 1968, the pubHc hearing of the Inquiry opened at the Court 
Room of the Canadian Transport Commission in Ottawa. 

Before considering the issues raised in this Inquiry, there is one matter that the 
Committee believes is deserving of special mention. Throughout these reasons, reference 

59 R.T.C.

will be made to the technique known as regression analysis. In explaining its findings 
relative to items and factors of cost, the Committee considers it to be useful to include a 
brief and general description of this technique. 

Regression analysis, as used in Canadian railway costing, is a mathematical 
technique whereby variations in expense items are related to corresponding variations in 
railway traffic. 

When there are good economic or engineering explanations for these relationships, 
the degree of correlation, or variability, shown by the regression analysis is presumed to 
reflect causation, that is, the extent to which the expense item is caused by traffic. 

Regression analysis derives these relationships by comparing a number of 
independent observations of the same expense item at different levels of traffic. The 
Canadian railways use "cross-section" analysis which involves comparing the traffic and 
expense levels of the various geographical divisions or areas of the railway during the same 
time period. This comparison of the divisional relajtionships between expense and traffic 
reveals an average relationship which is presumed to apply throughout the railway. 

As an example, yard costs could be developed for the Canadian Pacific by 
comparing yard expense on its 28 operating divisions with the corresponding yard 
switching minutes on the same divisions. This comparison might indicate that on the 
average a difference of one yard switching minute results in a difference of 40 cents of 
yard expense. In costing any specific traffic movement, each yard switching minute 
would then be presumed to have a variable cost of 40 cents. 

Simple regression is used when there is only one causative influence, or independent 
variable, being analyzed in relation to a given expense item. Multiple regression is used 
when two or more independent variables are studied to determine the simultaneous 
relationship of each to an expense category. The most significant example of multiple 
regression is the analysis used by the railways for track and roadway maintenance 
expense. These expenses in each of the railways' operating divisions are compared with 
the corresponding divisional totals of the following items: 

1 . Gross ton miles, freight and passenger; 

2. Yard switching miles; 

3. Roadway miles; 

4. An index of track grade and curvature. 

Mathematical techniques make it possible to calculate the proportion of total 
roadway maintenance expenses which correlate with each of these four independent 
variables. 

The expenses are thus divided between those which vary with traffic (gross ton 
miles and yard switching miles) and those which vary with the characteristics of the 
roadway network (road miles and curvature). 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The independent variables (presumed to be causative factors) used in regression 
analysis may be other expense items as well as measures of traffic or network 
characteristics. For example, superintendence is compared with the expense involved in 
the functions which are supervised. 

For each regression calculation, there are a number of statistical tests which provide 
quantitative expressions of the "fit" or degree of correlation between individual 
independent variables and the expense item under study (dependent variable). In the case 
of multiple regression, tests can indicate the extent to which the particular combination 
of independent variables explains total variation in the dependent expense category. 

POWERS OF THE COMMISSION 

Most of the work of the technical committee, from February to June 1968, was 
concerned with the technical problems of prescribing the items and factors relevant in the 
determination of costs. The intricacies and complexities of the difficult science and art of 
cost determination were given full expression in the discussions in the technical 
committee and in the recommendations of the experts that followed, and were reflected 
in the evidence that was put before the Committee in the course of twenty-five days of 
hearing, between September and November 1968. 

In later sections of these reasons, the Committee explains its decision on each of 
the items and factors of cost that will form part of its Cost Order, after a review of the 
recommendations and arguments made by the parties to the Inquiry, and, in fulfillment 
of its duty under section 387B of the Railway Act, after its own analysis and 
determination of what is relevant in prescribing the Cost Order. 

There is no issue that is more central to the entire course of determination and 
application of costs, both now and in the future, for aU the purposes of the Railway Act, 
than the extent of the powers of the Commission under sections 387A and 387B of the 
Act, and the manner in which they are exercised. 

We have chosen to deal with this issue now, before going on to a detailed 
consideration of each of the relevant cost determining items and factors. In this fashion, 
the Committee expects that the technical sections of its decision will be more readily 
understood. 

The governing principles relating to railway costs were laid down by Parliament in 
several sections imported into the Railway Act by the National Transportation Act. Our 
consideration of them begins with subsection (1) of section 387B: 

"387B. (1) The Commission shall by regulation prescribe for any of the purposes of 
this Act the items and factors, including the factors of depreciation and the cost of 
capital as provided in subsection (1) of section 387 A, which shall be relevant in the 
determination of costs, and, to the extent that the Commission deems it proper and 
relevant to do so, the Commission shall have regard to the principles of costing 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



adopted by the Royal Commission on Transportation appointed by the Order-in- 
Council dated the 13th day of May, 1959, in arriving at the conclusions contained 
in the report thereof, and to later developments in railway costing methods and 
techniques and to current conditions of railway operations." 

Clearly, the Commission is under a statutory obligation to prescribe the items and 
factors that are relevant in the determination of costs for any of the purposes of the 
Railway Act. Except for depreciation and cost of capital, items and factors must meet the 
test of relevance if they are to be included in the regulation, and what is relevant and 
what is not is a matter within the Commission's discretion. There must, however, be a 
factor of depreciation and a factor of cost of capital in the regulation, for subsection (1) 
of section 387 A requires that: 

"... there shall be included such allowance on a periodic basis 

a) for depreciation, and 

b) in respect of the cost of money expended, whether or not the expenditure 
was made out of borrowed money, 

as to the Commission seems reasonable in the circumstances." 

In the exercise of its power to prescribe cost items and factors, the Commission has 
a broad discretion which is Umited only by its duty to include such allowance for 
depreciation and cost of money (or capital), as to it seems reasonable in the 
circumstances. 

In the Cost Order, the Committee has prescribed, as the factors of depreciation and 
cost of capital, allowances for the purposes of the Railway Act which in its opinion are 
reasonable in the circumstances. These circumstances are discussed in detail in the 
sections deahng with depreciation and cost of capital and are taken into account in our 
findings. In so doing, we have rejected an argument made to us at the hearing by Counsel 
for two of the Provinces. 

In effect, we were asked by Counsel for the Government of the Province of Ontario 
to ehminate depreciation and cost of capital from the calculation of actual loss for the 
purposes of branch line and passenger-train service rationalization, under sections 314A 
to 314J of the Act, on the ground that the words . . such allowance . . ." in section 
387A (1) must be interpreted as meaning that the Committee could allow depreciation 
and cost of capital if it wished, but that it might also make no allowance whatever for 
depreciation or cost of capital. In other words, ". . . such allowance . . ." can mean "no 
allowance", and it was argued that this is the meaning we should accept. 

A proposition to the same effect but along somewhat divergent lines was made by 
Counsel for the Government of the Province of Alberta. It would have us interpret 
section 387A (1) as granting the Committee the right and duty to prescribe a scheme for 
depreciation or cost of capital to meet the individual requirements of different situations, 
and the result might be no depreciation or cost of capital in some situations. Sections 
314E (7) and 314J (7) were cited in support of this argument. 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



To accede to either of these arguments would be to strain the meaning of the Act 
beyond acceptable Hmits. Parliament used plain words in sections 387A (1) and 387B (1) 
in relation to depreciation and cost of capital and we must give them their ordinary 
meaning. The words in section 387A (1), ". . . such allowance on a periodic basis for 
depreciation and cost of money ... as to the Commission seems reasonable in the 
circumstances", means that the railways have a statutory right to an allowance and that 
the Committee has a duty to fix a reasonable amount in respect of that allowance. 
However, we are satisfied that in our discretion, so limited, we may allow depreciation or 
cost of capital on different bases, or at different rates, for different purposes of the 
Railway Act. 

During the hearing, the Report of the Royal Commission on Transportation (better 
known as the MacPherson Commission) was referred to on many occasions. The 
Committee's consultant, W. B. Saunders, was cross-examined extensively on evidence he 
had given when a witness before that Commission. Commentary by the MacPherson 
Commission on various aspects of cost methods and techniques appears periodically in 
the transcript of the evidence taken at the hearing. And the extent to which the 
Committee ought to have regard to the findings of the MacPherson Commission was fully 
argued before us. 

No inquiry into railway costing at this time would be complete without some 
reference to the Report of the MacPherson Commission. Its conclusions contained 
recommendations for maximum and minimum rate regulation, and for rail rationalization 
to which effective railway costing methods and techniques of determination and 
application were central. In this sense, the Report was the pioneer in the field of railway 
costing that has occupied the Committee over the last year. 

The Report of the MacPherson Commission is apphcable to cost determination for 
another reason. It is one of the considerations the Committee must have before it when 
prescribing items and factors relevant in the determination of railway costs, under section 
387B of the Railway Act. 

We were met with two essentially opposing arguments on the extent to which the 
Committee should have regard to the Report of the MacPherson Commission. 

On the one hand we were told that Parliament had directed us to look at the 
Report and pay heed to the principles of costing the Royal Commission had enunciated 
either in the Report or in the studies that supplemented or accompanied it; that these 
principles did not govern our determination but that they must be considered in the same 
way as . . later developments in railway costing methods and techniques . . ." and 
. . current conditions of railway operations . . ." must be considered. The degree to 
which these criteria enter into our determination of cost items and factors is 
discretionary, and the exercise of our discretion is to be governed by the extent to which 
we deem their inclusion proper and relevant. 

This general argument was supported by the Governments of the Provinces and the 
Canadian Co-operative Wheat Producers. 

59 R.T.C. 



- 333- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The other point of view was expressed by the Canadian Pacific Railway. 

Section 387B, like the other sections of the Railway Act under consideration, must 
be strictly interpreted so that the Committee can go no further than the precise meaning 
of the words used by ParUament will allow. Hence, only principles of costing may be 
considered by the Committee, and the principles are confined to those adopted by the 
MacPherson Commission in arriving at the conclusions contained in its Report. This, it 
was argued, means that the Committee must decide what are costing principles and what 
are not, and must then find out whether such principles were actually adopted by the 
Royal Commission in its Report. It was even suggested that the reference in section 387B 
(1) of the Act to the Report of the Royal Commission precludes consideration of costing 
principles contained in the supplementary studies, unless, presumably, it can be shown 
that they had specifically been adopted by the Royal Commission. Finally, Canadian 
Pacific agreed that the Committee had discretionary power to have regard to such 
principles of costing to the extent it deems it proper and relevant, but argued that the 
exercise of this power is strictly limited to only those principles that fall into the restricted 
category just described. 

On this important question we do not accept the approach of the Canadian Pacific 
Railway. It would have us subject the Report of the MacPherson Commission to 
interpretation as though it were a statute, deducing from its pages what are the adopted 
principles of costing and leaving all else aside, before we can make use of it in the manner 
stated by section 387B of the Railway Act. 

Volumes I and II of the Report are approximately 400 pages in length. Volume III, 
containing the results of the studies that the Commission considered of sufficient 
importance to pubHsh, consists of another 620 pages. Taken as a whole, the Report is a 
comprehensive review of the transportation economy of Canada and its problems, and the 
recommendations contained in it have had a far-reaching influence on the search for 
remedies, not the least of which is the National Transportation Act. 

Throughout the Report, reference is made time and again to the vital importance of 
railway costing concepts, methods and techniques in the respective roles of competition 
and regulation in the transportation economy. The Report of the Royal Commission 
should be viewed as a whole, as a step in the process of deciding what parts of its 
treatment of costing principles are relevant in the determination of items and factors of 
cost. 

In exercising its discretion under section 387B (1) of the Railway Act, the 
Committee must have regard to the relevant parts of the Report of the Royal Commission 
that contain the results of the most extensive investigation into railway costs prior to the 
passing of the National Transportation Act, and, for the future, to later developments and 
conditions. 

In the present case, as we have found in prescribing the Cost Order that 
accompanies these reasons, judgments have had to be made involving economic, 
accounting and costing considerations, as well as the application of legal principles. In so 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO, 15 



AUGUST 1969 



doing, the Committee has had before it the Report of the MacPherson Commission and 
all of the work of the experts in the technical committee, and the evidence, 
recommendations and argument developed during the hearing, which was the method we 
adopted to determine what were the "... later developments in railway costing methods 
and techniques and . . . current conditions of railway operations". 

The Committee has, therefore, decided to consider the principles of costing 
adopted by the MacPherson Commission in the full context of the Report and, subject to 
the qualifications expressed by the Royal Commission itself, the accompanying studies. 
Only in that way can effect be given to those principles to the extent that the Committee 
deems it proper and relevant to take them into account in prescribing cost items and 
factors. 

There was no comparable argument that any restriction exists on which "... later 
developments in railway costing methods and techniques . . ." and "... current 
conditions of railway operations . . ." may enter into the prescription of cost items and 
factors. The Committee must have regard to all such developments and conditions that 
are relevant, and has done so in its findings respecting the items and factors contained in 
its Cost Order. 

AREAS OF AGREEMENT 

One objective of the prehearing meetings of the technical committee had been to 
ascertain whether there were any matters on which there could be such a degree of 
agreement as to remove them from the realm of controversy. 

There was general agreement on a definition of variable cost. 

In other areas differences were resolved to the satisfaction of the parties by 
co-operation between the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways, usually 
involving a change in the costing methods of one or both companies. 

The matters on which there was such agreement are set out below, seriatim. 

Definition of Variable Cost 

The need for a definition of variable cost is an important one that arises primarily 
under section 334 of the Railway Act. This section requires that freight rates be 
compensatory and provides that a freight rate shall be deemed to be compensatory when 
it exceeds the variable cost, as determined by the Commission, of the movement of the 
traffic concerned. For the purposes of this section, section 387B of the Act places an 
onus on the Commission to prescribe the items and factors which shall be relevant in the 
determination of variable costs. 

The determination of variable cost, in its application to the sections of the Railway 
Act requiring cost submissions was considered and discussed during the Cost Inquiry, 
resulting in the positions on the question of the defmition of variable cost summarized 
below. 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



W. B. Saunders stated the EBS position thus: the definition of the term "variable 
cost" poses one of the primary conceptual problems in railway costing chiefly because all 
available definitions are too broad for appHcation to the specific requirements of the 
Railway Act. In the short-run, most costs are unaffected by single unit changes in output 
because existing plant can easily absorb them. In the long-run, all costs vary with output 
in differing degrees at different levels of output. 

Counsel for Canadian National noted that each of the several parties to the hearing 
came close to a definition of Dr. George Borts, consultant to the Provinces: 

"The long-run marginal cost of output is the cost to the firm of producing a 
permanent and quantitatively small change in the flow of output, when all resource 
inputs are optimally adjusted to change." 

Counsel for Canadian Trucking Associations Inc., argued that, with reference to 
sections 334 (3) and 387A of the Railway Act, Dr. Borts' definition was the only way of 
defining variable costs. Any other definition would be short of what the Act requires and 
would be otherwise economically unsound; later he stated the belief that the "long-term 
average variable cost principles", if they were adopted, would eliminate the need for 
making an exception. 

Algoma Steel Corporation took the position that the time period used in 
determining variable costs should be long enough to allow for changes in operations and 
expenses resulting from the influence of fluctuations in traffic volume. Its representative 
argued that it is extremely important that the determination of variable cost reflect 
variabiUty as affected only by changes in volume; that variable costs should not include 
costs that are a function of time alone and that the Committee should determine those 
costs which approach a one hundred per cent variability. He also submitted that the 
statistical results of these analyses should be reviewed in the light of operating judgment 
and common sense. All new techniques concerning their adaptability to the determina- 
tion of variability should be fully and continuously explored. 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific, in submitting the company's position, said that the 
only clear definition of the meaning of the plain term "variable costs" is that agreed to by 
W. B. Saunders, thus: 

"Variable cost can be defined as the increase in total cost resulting from an 
expansion in a firm's volume of business, that is, physical measures such as traffic in 
the case of the railway." 

Canadian Pacific Counsel also argued that the time period must be considered when 
calculating variable costs. He referred to a question directed to W. B. Saunders: 

"Would you agree again in the context of section 334 that, depending on the 
particular circumstances, variable cost might contemplate a range of time periods 
from short-term to long-term? " 

Mr. Saunders replied that the problem was always to relate the costs to the traffic. If the 
traffic under consideration is continuing on-going traffic, then it seems very clear that 

59 R.T.C. 



- 336- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



long-run variable costs must be used in order to get a meaningful and relevant cost for 
that traffic. On the other hand, if the traffic under consideration is of some special 
variety - perhaps to be moved only once in a particular time - then the relevant costs are 
the costs again that are created by that traffic; and if it is not long-run traffic, 
adjustments would have to be made so as to reflect only those variable costs that were 
caused by that traffic. He continued: 

"The underlying assumption is that long-run variable cost is the relevant cost for 
the traffic, and if the traffic is short-term traffic, then the long-run cost is not 
relevant." 

After consideration of all the evidence and the discussion of variable cost, the 
Committee is satisfied that there is general acceptance of the language of the later 
definition suggested by Dr. Borts: 

"Variable cost may be defined as the long-run marginal cost of output, being the 
cost of producing a permanent and quantitatively small change in the traffic flow of 
output, when all resource cost inputs are optimaUy adjusted to change." 

In noting this definition, we might add that variable cost may, in special cases, be 
considered as the short-run marginal cost of output, being the cost incurred for the 
movement of specific non-recurring traffic over a limited period of time. 

Uniform Classification 

Account 202 Complex — 

Track and Roadway Maintenance 

Canadian Pacific has agreed to use road miles instead of track miles as one of the 
bases in calculating variable costs of this group of maintenance expenses. 

Canadian National, in its future analysis of this account complex, will use a factor 
for grade or, most probably, curvature in order to improve the explanatory nature of the 
regression. Both railways, however, are continuing further analysis of this complex. 

The track and road maintenance costs assignable to the train switching miles cannot 
presently be developed by Canadian National until the company evolves a system for 
tabulating switching miles, at which time consideration will be given to combining train 
and yard switching miles as is done by Canadian Pacific. 

Both railways have formerly equated one gross ton mile of freight with two gross 
ton miles of passenger-train operation. This assumption has given double weighting to the 
road maintenance cost assigned to passenger-train operation. With the upgrading of 
freight-train operation in recent years this distinction is no longer valid and equal weight 
will be given the two factors in future analyses of the 202 complex. 

Account 326 - Work Equipment Maintenance 

Canadian Pacific will assign these costs as an overhead ratio to account 202 
Complex (Track and Roadway Maintenance) and account 272 (Removing Snow, Ice and 
Sand), instead of using time series regression.

Accounts 380 and 392 - Yard and Train Enginemen 

Because locomotive firemen in yard and freight service are being "phased-out" in 
accordance with prevaiUng collective agreements, their wages will now be considered by 
both railways as being of a fixed nature and unrelated to freight and switching operations. 
The wages of locomotive firemen used in passenger trains will continue to be regarded as 
variable on both railways. 

Accounts 275, 333, 357, 414 and 455 - Insurance 

Both railways will revise their previous treatment of insurance costs under which 
Canadian Pacific insurance costs varied with "all other general expenses" and Canadian 
National insurance costs were fully fixed. 

Both railways have agreed to assign insurance premiums according to the nature of 
insurance losses. 

Non-Revenue Freight 

Canadian Pacific will use the same formula as applied by Canadian National in the 
treatment of the above expenses. The formula treats non-revenue labour and material 
expense as a percentage of capital expenditures and material operating expenses. 

One result of the work of W. B. Saunders and the technical committee between 
February 5 and June 30, 1968, as outlined earHer, was at least tacit agreement on the 
items and factors which would have to be fully argued at the hearing stage of the Inquiry 
and left to the Committee for decision. This happened either because general agreement 
was not reached on the factors of: 

Depreciation 
Cost of Capital 
Freight Car Depreciation 
Fuel Costs

There was also agreement that further work or study was required on many aspects 
of railway costing to which reference is made throughout these reasons. 

While the technical committee was not able to agree on the manner in which these 
important issues should be treated, they were the subject of discussion and exchange of 
opinion by the committee and this resulted in their coming before the Railway Transport 
Committee in a better state of definition. The preliminary work that was done by BBS 
and the parties also substantially reduced the time that would otherwise have been taken 
at the hearing in defining the questions the Committee was being asked to decide. Of the 
foregoing Hst, the items and factors not resolved at the technical committee stage will be 
discussed seriatim. 

DEPRECIATION 

Section 387B of the Railway Act directs the Commission to prescribe the items and 
factors, including the factors of depreciation and cost of capital, which shall be relevant 
in the determination of costs. 

The Board's Cost Order provides for the inclusion of depreciation in cost 
submissions relative to applications to abandon branch Unes, to discontinue passenger- 
train services, and for other purposes pertaining to rates for the carriage of goods. The 
provision for depreciation is in accordance with its classification as an expense under the 
Uniform Classification of Accounts prescribed for Canadian railways pursuant to section 
387 of the Railway Act. Sections 1 1 (a) and 1 1 (b) of the General Instructions of the 
Classification provide : 

"(a) There shall be charged monthly to expenses or other appropriate accounts and 
credited to the accounts for accrued depreciation amounts which will 
approximate the loss in service value of depreciable property not restored by 
current maintenance or recoverable by insurance. The amounts to be charged 
as depreciation shall be determined under a system which will allocate the 
service value of the property over its estimated service life in a systematic and 
rational manner. The service value of the assets, for depreciation purposes, 
shall be their cost less their estimated salvage value. In determining the 
amount of the allocations, consideration may properly be given to pertinent 
factors such as annual variations in use, increasing obsolescence or inadequacy, 
although the amount of depreciation is not intended to be a valuation or a 
measurement of the effect of all such occurrences. The charges for 
depreciation shall be computed in conformity with the group plan under the 
straight-line method, the 'user' or unit of production method, the diminishing 
value or other method approved by the Canadian Transport Commission.

(b) The service life is the period of time between the installation of the property 
and its retirement for accounting purposes. 

The group plan is the plan under which depreciation charges are accrued in 
respect of the classes of property included in a primary account or in a group 
of primary accounts by applying a composite rate of depreciation determined 
upon the basis of the aggregate service value and properly weighted service 
lives of such classes of property. Under the group plan of depreciation 
accounting the full service value of a unit of property is chargeable to the 
appropriate accrued depreciation account upon its retirement whether or not 
it has attained the average service life." 

Suggestions were advanced by several parties to the Inquiry that the Committee 
should prescribe cost regulations which would involve exceptions to the manner in which 
depreciation charges are now determined under the Uniform Classification of Accounts. 
We will first illustrate the application of depreciation as provided for in the Uniform 
Classification of Accounts, and then outHne the suggestions made by Canadian Pacific, 
the Govemments of the Provinces, EBS and Canadian National. 

Suggestions were also made to the Committee by other parties, including the 
Manitoba Branch Lines Association, Canadian Trucking Associations Inc., Canadian 
Co-operative Wheat Producers Limited and United Grain Growers Limited. These were all 
considered by the Committee in making its findings on depreciation. 

Under the Uniform Classification of Accounts, the assets in respect of which 
depreciation is to be charged are listed under the Property accounts. For example. 
Account No. 8, Ties, includes the cost of cross, switch, bridge and other track ties used in 
the construction of tracks for the movement or storage of locomotives and cars, the cost 
of additional ties subsequently laid in such tracks, and the cost of ties laid in such tracks 
under a replacement programme. Expenditures for ties under a replacement programme 
cannot be charged directly to expense, but must be capitalized; under depre- 
ciation accounting only an amount representing one year's depreciation may be 
charged to expense annually. The annual depreciation charges continue as long as the 
assets remain in service or until the reserve for depreciation equals the book value for 
the group. 

A part of the investment in ties will be in branch lines proposed for abandonment. 
In the event of abandonment, ties and other assets on the branch line would be retired. 
The Property accounts would be reduced by the book value of the branch line assets, and 
the charging of depreciation in respect of those assets would cease. 

The railways, when developing the initial depreciation rates required under the 
Uniform Classification of Accounts, conducted detailed studies in order to determine 
average rates for groups of assets within primary accounts. Using ties as an example, there 
were several classes of ties and there were also treated and untreated ties; the ultimate 
depreciation rate was a weighted average for the entire account. In so far as it was 
possible, the rates were determined from the actual experience of the carrier, and, for 

59 R.T.C. 



340- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



certain assets, company records were such as to give a clear indication of average service 
life. For other assets such as grading, the property records could not give as clear an 
estimate of average service life. Intensive studies were conducted in order to determine 
the average service lives of ties, rail and other track material. 

The calculation of service lives on a group basis and the maintenance of property 
records on this basis is the practical way of accounting for depreciation for most railway 
assets. 

As has been noted, some of the parties to the Inquiry recommended that 
exceptions to the prescribed depreciation accounting should be made for costing 
purposes. These exceptions would apply in the case of branch Hnes and passenger-train 
services which the railways wish to abandon or discontinue. The position of these parties 
contrasts with the position of Canadian Pacific. 

Position of Canadian Pacific 

The position taken by Canadian Pacific was that the Uniform Classification of 
Accounts must be adhered to, i.e., in computing costs for the purposes of those sections 
of the Railway Act enumerated in section 38 7 A (1), the Committee must include an 
allowance for depreciation calculated according to the group plan and treating the assets 
in question as an integral part of the rail enterprise. 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific submitted that Parliament, when it used the word in 
section 387A, must be presumed to have given "depreciation" the technical meaning it 
had acquired under subsection (4) of section 387 of the Railway Act. It provides: 

"387. . . . 

(4) The Commission shall prescribe the classes of property for which 
depreciation charges may properly be included under operating expenses in the 
accounts, and the rate or rates of depreciation that shall be charged with respect to 
each of the classes of property." 

He noted that the Uniform Classification of Accounts had been in force for eleven 
years prior to passage of section 387A. 

It was argued that from this it followed that, if Parliament had intended the word 
"depreciation" to have a meaning other than the meaning it had acquired under the 
Railway Act, it would have said so. 

Canadian Pacific acknowledged that a different interpretation had been given to the 
word "depreciation" by EBS. Theirs was an economist's definition under which 
depreciation can be defined as a charge reflecting loss of the economic value of assets. 
The expression "loss of economic value" can, in turn, be defined as the declining present 
value of the future income-earning power of the property. 

But in the opinion of Canadian Pacific, the concept recommended by EBS with 
respect to depreciation on branch lines depends on their own definition; it depends on 

59 R.T.C. 



- 341 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



the concept of loss of future income-earning power. It is because of this definition that 
EBS get the idea of sunk investment. If the definition is not the correct definition under 
the law, then the Committee must consider what the fact of using the wrong definition 
does to the EBS theory as to depreciation in respect of branch lines. 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific was asked by the Committee if it was his contention 
that the law prevented the Committee from treating depreciation differently under the 
new legislation than it was treated at the time the Act was amended. He said it did not 
but it was the company's submission "that there is a system of depreciation which has 
been going for quite awhile, which is adequate and that the law provides for, and that it is 
not necessary to change that system". He said that he did not submit that the system 
couldn't be changed, but there is a question of changing the Uniform Classification of 
Accounts. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces advocated the use of cash flow as a substitute 
for the traditional methods of measuring the cost of capital. Their position was that cash 
flow would be substituted for depreciation charges, and for the hypothetical costs of 
"borrowing" the net investment base from financial institutions in the capital markets. 
While this recommendation is discussed in the section of these reasons on Cost of Capital, 
it is mentioned here because it is relevant to the Provincial position on depreciation. 

Mr. R. L. Banks, a Provincial consultant, in giving evidence on their behalf, 
discussed the Canadian Pacific position on depreciation in respect of branch lines. He said 
that Canadian Pacific appeared to prefer accounting practice to economic reaHty. The 
railway's position centered on the opinion that depreciation represents a cost of doing 
business, which is a cost in the same sense as any other expense. He said that the 
Provinces rejected this characterization of depreciation expense. They believe that it 
differs from other expenses because it is an allocation of past or sunk costs by contrast 
with other operating expense, all of which represent current or avoidable costs. 

Mr. Banks said that costs, other than depreciation, necessarily have an impact on 
cash flow whereas no such impact is experienced from depreciation. However that 
expense is accounted for, cash flow is unaffected, and, by virtue of this characteristic, 
depreciation may also be distinguished from all other operating expenses. He thought that 
another infirmity in Canadian Pacific's position as to branch lines, related to the 
company's use of group depreciation, a practice which obscures the lower than average 
depreciation rates typical of branch line road property. 

The position of the Governments of the Provinces in respect of depreciation was 
further elaborated upon in the argument of Counsel for the Government of Manitoba. He 
stated that it was the opinion of the Provinces that costs taken into account in the 
computation of actual loss of a branch line should exclude a number of items, including 
road property depreciation, except to the extent that such items may be directly traced 
to the line under study. 

59 R.T.C. 



- 342- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



At a later point in his argument he said that the Provincial submission was that 
depreciation is not an avoidable cost, and therefore, "does not belong in the actual loss 
computation. It will not be saved if the line were abandoned and accordingly should not 
be a determinant of the abandonment". He also maintained that depreciation should not 
be compensated for by way of subsidy if a branch line were ordered to be retained, 
because it would not otherwise be recoverable by the railway. 

To understand fully the Provincial position on depreciation as a factor of cost, it is 
necessary to make reference to the arguments in reply of Counsel for the Governments of 
both Manitoba and Saskatchewan. 

Argument in Reply by Counsel for the Government of Saskatchewan 

Counsel for Saskatchewan argued that the position taken throughout the Inquiry 
by Canadian Pacific was that section 387A of the Railway Act directs the Committee to 
allow depreciation on the tracks and related facilities of a branch line. It was his opinion 
that the general language of section 387A could not override the specific provisions of 
subsection (7) of section 314E which empowers the Committee to exclude, in actual loss 
calculations, such items and factors relating to costs and revenues as to the Committee 
seemed proper. 

As to what was meant by depreciation in section 387A, Counsel noted that two 
completely different concepts of depreciation had been advanced before the Committee. 
The first might be called the accounting concept of depreciation which was described in 
the submissions of Canadian Pacific. This concept holds that as long as assets are in 
existence, some periodic allowance must be made in respect of them to cover their 
replacement or obsolescence. The other concept, advanced by EBS and by the Provinces, 
might be called the economic concept of depreciation. It holds that, properly, 
depreciation could only apply to property which had an economic value measured in 
terms of capability of earning income. 

The Provincial submission was that different concepts of depreciation could and 
should apply to different types of costing proceedings. In the case of branch line 
abandonment, the allowance for depreciation should be based on the net salvage value of 
the fixed assets of branch line property, and also an allowance for depreciation should be 
made for fixed branch line property which has an alternative use in the railway system. 
Counsel for Saskatchewan noted that for other elements of property involved, such as 
rolling stock, the depreciation is allowed through a computation of unit costs associated 
with the traffic. 

He also made reference to the group plan for depreciation of railway assets. He 
objected to this being applied to branch lines since it was based upon broad averages 
derived from the railway general accounting structure, and it could not give an accurate 
determination of the actual condition of the assets on a branch line, the extent to which 
they have been depreciated, and the extent to which they are capable of further 
depreciation. 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



He concluded that the railway concept of depreciation, while proper for general 
accounting purposes, deals with broad averages and does not throw up an accurate result 
for the status of any given branch line. For this reason the method advocated by the 
Governments of the Provinces is more appropriate for the purpose of determining the 
allowance for depreciation in the case of branch lines, i.e., "that the allowance for 
depreciation should be based only on the net salvage value of the fixed assets of branch 
line property, and also that an allowance for depreciation should be made for fixed 
branch line property which has an alternative use in the railway system". 

Argument in Reply by Counsel for the Government of Manitoba 

Counsel for Manitoba said the Provinces wished to make the record clear that for 
the purposes of section 314B of the Railway Act they were not suggesting that 
depreciation and cost of capital should be excluded as cost factors; in fact they said that 
depreciation and cost of capital should be included but based on salvage value, not on 
book value. He submitted that this would be a reasonable allowance under section 387A 
(1) and would be within the power and scope of section SHE (7) as to what matters may 
be included or excluded. 

In answer to the Committee's question as to whether it could determine 
depreciation differently for different sections of the Act, Counsel said he saw no 
particular reason why depreciation must be computed identically for all sections. Under 
section 314B the Committee would have to determine actual loss by considering the costs 
incurred, and the question is whether or not these costs would be the same as variable 
costs determined under section 334. In his opinion, the Committee could decide under a 
particular section that depreciation would be treated in a certain manner because in the 
opinion of the Committee it was proper, and under another section depreciation would 
be treated in another manner. 

He suggested that the new legislation encourages the railways to rationalize their 
operations. In practice this has largely been interpreted to mean abandonment of a line or 
other particular service. Under these conditions some assets will be taken out of service 
before their full useful life has been expended. Should a substantial number of such assets 
be removed from any one group, the railways would raise the depreciation rate on the 
balance of the assets to reflect the shorter average useful Hfe, this being the function of 
group depreciation. 

He noted that if an abandonment were authorized under either section 168 or 31 4C 
of the Railway Act, the railways' only recourse, in order to reflect accurately the 
allocation of the cost of the assets in the group affected, is to charge a higher rate to 
those assets still in service. He said it is important to note that depreciation is not saved, 
but is transferred to other assets in the group. 

Position of EBS 

EES recommended that in lieu of depreciation charges on property proposed for 
abandonment, the railways should provide a year by year forecast of capital expenditures 

59 R.T.C. 



- 344- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



needed to maintain the line in operation. Depreciation of any property which would 
continue in use elsewhere on the railway, and depreciation of salvage value, if any, should 
be allowed. 

This recommendation of EBS reflects the approach taken in their earlier Position 
Paper on the subject presented to the Committee and the parties prior to the hearing. In 
that Paper, entitled "Costing Concepts in Branch Line Abandonments", reference was 
made to the importance of including capital cost forecasts in the calculation of actual 
loss: 

"The importance of including capital forecasts in the Section 314B calculation of 
'actual loss' becomes clear if we consider the possible consequences of a failure to 
do so. If capital consumption is represented solely by depreciation charges, it 
becomes a reasonably stable cost element which is fixed by the economic hfespan 
of the branch line's property. There is no consideration of, or accounting for, the 
actual retirement and replacement of individual units of property. While much of 
the depreciable property in a branch Hne-items such as rail and ties-can be 
replaced in small increments, other elements, particularly in the buildings and 
structures category, must be replaced in their entirety at one time. Since one 
bridge, for example, may constitute a large portion of the total investment in a 
single branch line, its cost could easily swing the balance between loss and profit. If 
'actual loss' submissions under section 314B are limited to historical costs, a 
marginal line which requires a bridge replacement could not become a candidate for 
abandonment until after the bridge has been installed. It then might show a severe 
loss and immediately be approved for abandonment. Thus, a procedure which 
excludes capital requirement forecasts from the actual loss calculation could very 
well force the railways to pour additional investment into marginal lines simply in 
order to qualify them for abandonment. The waste of resources is obvious and 
clearly runs counter to national policy. 

Our recommendation, therefore, is that in both the 'actual loss' calculation under 
Section 314B and the cost models under Section 314C depreciation charges other 
than decline in salvage value be excluded from the computations and that a 
year-by-year forecast of new capital requirements be substituted instead." 

No evidence was presented subsequently to indicate that the use of depreciation on 
past investments in applications under sections 314B or 3141 of the Act will prevent 
consideration of branch line or passenger-train services which face large impending capital 
requirements. In such an instance, the Committee has adequate powers under sections 
387A and 387B to establish suitable procedures. 

Position of Canadian National 

For the purposes of actual loss on branch lines, Canadian National accepted the 
so-called "sunk cost concept" of EBS. Counsel for the Company noted in his argument 
that under this concept depreciation would be allowed on salvage value only, and that, 

59 R.T.C. 



- 345 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



when an uneconomic line is required to be continued in operation in the pubHc interest, 
the road property capital assets would be taken out of the capital accounts of the railway 
and future capital investments in the line would be treated as operating expenses in the 
year in which that investment is made. 

Canadian National would also apply the "sunk cost concept" to passenger-train 
services proposed for discontinuance. For assets other than uneconomic branch line 
properties and passenger-car equipment on uneconomic services, depreciation would be 
calculated in the manner prescribed under the Uniform Classification of Accounts except 
that current replacement costs (adjusted for technological change) would be substituted 
for historical cost. 

Counsel for Canadian National expressed a reservation with regard to the 
recommendation that the cost of properties of subsidized branch lines be written off the 
books of account. Canadian National would prefer to leave the property cost on the 
books and transfer it to a non-depreciable category, at the same time transferring an 
appropriate amount of depreciation reserves to appropriate contra-accounts. In the 
company's opinion, the railway's books would be the best place to record future capital 
expenditures which would be financed by direct subsidy. 

The historical costs so recorded would then only be written off when the Hnes were 
abandoned; or, alternatively, the costs of branch lines whose status changed to one of 
non-subsidy would be transferred back to the depreciable status on cessation of subsidy. 

Counsel for the Company also noted that such deferment of write-offs might seem 
somewhat illogical at first glance, but the net asset position would be the same either 
way. He said that this was only one suggested method of deaHng with the accounting 
aspect of this matter; there were other ways in which this could be accomplished and still 
maintain the same historic record. 

Counsel for Canadian National also referred to the provisions of section 314J of the 
Act, which limits the subsidy for uneconomic passenger-train services to 80% of the 
actual loss. He noted that under the "sunk cost concept" this would limit the subsidy for 
new passenger equipment purchases to 80% of their cost. Under the circumstances, the 
railways would undoubtedly tend to resist demands on the part of the public for new 
equipment for subsidized services. 

However, in his opinion, there would be no particular problem from an accounting 
point of view if new equipment were purchased for subsidized services with Canadian 
National financing 20% of the cost. The company would simply capitahze its share of the 
cost (as is now done for public improvements) and this cost would then be depreciated 
over the estimated lifetime of the equipment. He noted that depreciation on such assets 
would have to be excluded from future subsidy claims since the Government would 
already have paid its 80% share.

Findings of the Committee 

For the purpose of calculating actual loss in applications to abandon branch Hnes 
under section 314B, or discontinue passenger-train services under section 3141, the 
Committee finds that the railways should be permitted to include the actual depreciation 
that has been charged as a factor in determining the cost of operating the line or service. 
Actual loss should be based upon the fact that, at the time the application is made to 
abandon or discontinue, the line or service is an integral operating part of the railway 
system. 

Similarly, for the purposes of sections 317, 329, 334 and 336, the Committee has 
decided that there should be no special variation in the manner in which depreciation is 
allowed for cost determination. 

Where the Committee has decided that an uneconomic branch Hne should not be 
abandoned or an uneconomic passenger-train service should not be discontinued, the 
railway company is given the right by the Railway Act to claim for subsidy. At this point 
the company could have eliminated the line or service had the Committee not declared 
that it should be continued. We consider it a proper exercise of the Committee's 
discretion to look at what depreciation costs will be incurred by reason of continuance of 
the line or service. With regard to property which would be retired, the company would 
be able to realize only salvage value. The only further element of depreciation in respect 
of such property which the railway will incur by reason of continuance of the Hne or 
service would be the decline in the salvage value. 

Certain new assets may have to be added to continue the line or service as directed 
by the Committee. If the Committee subsequently determines that the line or service 
should be abandoned or discontinued, the new assets added at the time of the original 
directive may not have been fully depreciated. For this reason, in calculating claims for 
the last year of operation prior to abandonment or discontinuance, the railways may 
include as a cost the residual cost of those new assets. That cost should be calculated by 
deducting from the actual cost of the new assets their salvage value at the time of 
abandonment or discontinuance and the accumulated depreciation allowed for subsidy 
purposes in previous years. 

After considering all the evidence and argument on the question, the Committee 
has decided that depreciation should receive different treatment as a factor in the 
determination of costs for the purpose of claims under sections 314E, 314G and 314J of 
the Railway Act than the treatment it receives in the determination of costs for other 
purposes of the Act. 

The Committee, therefore, finds: 

1. In computing the amount of "actual loss" in appHcations to abandon branch lines 
under section 314B, or to discontinue passenger-train services under section 3141, 
there will be included an allowance for depreciation on a periodic basis calculated in 
conformity with the Uniform Classification of Accounts. 

59 R.T.C. 



- 347- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



2. In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for the purposes of 
sections 317, 329, 334 and 336, there will be included an allowance for depreciation 
on a periodic basis calculated in conformity with the Uniform Classification of 
Accounts. 

3. In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for the purposes of 
sections 314E, 314G and 314J, there will be included an allowance for depreciation 
on a periodic basis: 

(a) that will reflect the annual decline in the net value that could be realized from the 
salvage of depreciable road property which the Committee is satisfied could or 
would be retired if the line were abandoned or the service discontinued and which 
is required for continued operation; and 

(b) at rates approved under the Uniform Classification of Accounts applied to the 
book value of such other depreciable assets and of such new assets as the 
Committee is satisfied are required for continued operation of the line or service. 

4. In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for the purposes of 
sections 314E, 3 140 and 314J, there will be included in the costs, for the last year of 
operation prior to abandonment of a hne or discontinuance of a service which had 
previously been ordered retained, an allowance for depreciation, on such new assets as 
the Committee is satisfied are required to comply with the order of retention. This 
allowance for depreciation shall be equal to the residual cost of such new assets 
calculated by deducting from the actual cost of the assets their salvage value and the 
accumulated depreciation allowed on them for subsidy purposes in previous years. 

COST OF CAPITAL 

This is the second of the two factors Depreciation and Cost of Capital which the 
Committee, under section 387B of the Railway Act, is directed to include as specific 
factors when prescribing the items and factors which shall be relevant in the 
determination of costs. 

During the hearing all parties ably presented their positions in respect of cost of 
capital. It is, however, an extensive subject and there was wide disagreement on the 
method of computation and the extent of the Committee's discretion in prescribing the 
allowance for cost of capital for the purposes of the Act. An initial difficulty is that guide 
lines for the treatment of cost of capital have not been as well identified in past 
regulatory judgments, orders and regulations as in the case of depreciation. We have noted 
in a previous section of these reasons that depreciation is prescribed as an item of expense 
under the Uniform Classification of Accounts, and detailed direction is given regarding 
the approval of depreciation rates and the investment base to which they are applied. 

Cost of capital is not subject to such identification and direction in the Uniform 
Classification of Accounts. It is not prescribed as an item of expense.

There are three broad categories of issues relating to the cost of capital which, to 
avoid confusion, should be separated and discussed independently. The first is the general 
method of developing variable investment to be assigned to traffic in individual variable 
cost determinations. The second is the assignment of the investment upon which cost of 
capital is calculated for the different purposes of the Railway Act. The third is the 
calculation of the rate of return to be applied to the assigned investment for each of the 
purposes of the Act. 

1) Development of variable investment 

For purposes of determining the cost of capital to be assigned to traffic movement, 
the railways calculate the net asset value of the investment which, over the long run, is 
variable with the traffic under study. 

Under the group plan of depreciation accounting the net investment value of each 
individual asset is not known, which makes it necessary first to estabHsh the gross 
investment for each group or account. Having established the gross investment by group 
or account, the variable portion of this gross investment is then ascertained by regression 
analysis for road property, and by direct analysis for equipment. 

Canadian Pacific has recorded on its books the gross investment in road property by 
account by property section, and its gross investment in equipment by each individual 
piece of equipment. Depreciation is also accrued by account. 

Canadian National records gross investment and depreciation accruals on its books 
in the same detail as Canadian Pacific but on a system basis for road property only. 

(a) Canadian National Gross Variable Investment Functions 

Because Canadian National does not have a separation of road property accounts 
into its 18 railway operating areas it is unable to conduct regression analyses similar to 
those now performed by Canadian Pacific to produce its own variable gross investment 
and unit costs of variable gross investment. Canadian National therefore has been using 
the gross investment functions developed by Canadian Pacific through a series of 
regression analyses of Canadian Pacific property accounts against the appropriate causal 
output units. 

When these Canadian Pacific investment functions are applied to the output units 
of Canadian National, they result in a reconstructed total gross investment which is 
considerably below that shown on the Canadian National books. Canadian National 
contended that this difference is due to the relatively newer average age, hence higher 
cost of Canadian National property and equipment, and to differences in the density 
characteristics of the two railways. 

In view of this, Canadian National suggested that the Canadian Pacific variable gross 
investment functions, applied to Canadian National, should be adjusted upward to 
correspond with the total gross investment recorded in the railway's property accounts. 

59 R.T.C.

AUGUST 1969 



EBS recommended that the ultimate solution is for Canadian National to develop 
an investment function of its own. EBS indicated that to do this Canadian National will 
have to separate its road property accounts among the 18 operating areas into which the 
railway is divided, and then conduct regression analyses similar to those performed now 
by the Canadian Pacific. It is realized that this is a sizable undertaking, and so, as an 
interim measure, they recommended that Canadian National continue to use Canadian 
Pacific functions. 

We agree with the EBS recommendations and we adopt them. Canadian National 
may be correct that certain physical, financial and operating differences account for the 
disparity between the Canadian Pacific gross investment functions and the Canadian 
National book investment. However, we cannot accept the Canadian National book 
investment without a similar detailed analysis as was made of Canadian Pacific in the 
early 1950's. This is particularly important in view of the fact that the values of much of 
the property were recorded prior to the formation of Canadian National at a time when 
there was no government review of the value assignments. We therefore see no alternative 
to the continued use by Canadian National of the Canadian Pacific gross investment 
functions. 

(b) Canadian National Net-to-Gross Investment Ratio 

The Canadian National recorded depreciation reserve does not correspond with the 
accumulated depreciation which would exist had depreciation accounting been in effect 
throughout the history of the railway. Therefore, its present net-to-gross ratio overstates 
net investment for purposes of cost of capital determination. As EBS pointed out, the use 
of the existing net-to-gross ratio overstates the level of net investment as an expression of 
the residual economic value of the railway's property. 

Speaking at the hearing in respect of Canadian National net book values, Counsel 
for the Company said: 

"With respect to the book values, we concede that the Canadian National's 
depreciation reserves are, in fact, inadequate. ... We cannot, therefore, and do not, 
deny that Canadian National's current net book values overstate, on the basis of 
conventional accounting, the unexpired costs of assets employed." 

In view of the foregoing, the Committee cannot accept the continued use of the 
Canadian National current net-to-gross investment ratios. EBS recommended that the net 
investment should be recalculated to a fully depreciated level assuming depreciation 
accounting had always been in use. This is one solution and there may be others. In any 
event, Canadian National will be directed to develop and present to the Committee for 
consideration a programme which will provide acceptable current net-to-gross investment 
ratios. In the interim, Canadian National should use the net-to-gross investment ratios of 
Canadian Pacific.

(c ) Value in Cu rren t Dollars 

As an alternative to book values, Counsel for Canadian National proposed the use 
of the current value of assets for all costing purposes under the requirements of the 
Railway Act. This, he argued, would yield better investment valuations in the case of 
Canadian National, and more reliable costs than data based on actual or estimated 
historical costs. The position of Canadian National is that book values based on historical 
costs and conventional depreciation methods measure only the unamortized portion of 
the original cost of capital assets, which does not provide satisfactory asset valuations as 
reflected by their current economic value. 

We agree with the opinion of EBS that this proposal would not be useful for 
regulatory purposes. The use of current dollars may be acceptable for corporate planning 
purposes, but it would inject new elements of uncertainty in the regulatory process and 
would be no less subject to criticism as to relevancy than investment calculated on the 
present historical basis. Carried to its logical extreme, this procedure should involve a 
calculation of reproduction cost for the entire existing plant. The resultant railway 
investment would be of little relevance to Canadian National as it actually exists. 

2) Assignment of Cost of Capital Base for Purposes of the Railway Act 

(a) Sections 31 7, 329, 334, 336 - Rate Regulation 

The foregoing section on Development of Variable Investment dealt with the issues 
of determining the variable net investment to be assigned to traffic in cases which involve 
only variable cost; such cases would fall under the rate-related sections of the Act listed 
above. The use of these methods to determine the net investment base for variable costs 
reflects past regulatory decisions made for rate-making purposes. They have been 
generally acceptable in so far as the calculation of the variable investment was concerned, 
although there were marked differences of opinion in respect of what constituted a 
reasonable rate of return on that investment. 

(b) Sections 314A through 314J - Branch Line Abandonment and Passenger Train 
Discontinuance 

Positions of the Parties 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific argued that the proper investment base to be used in 
respect of that company for all purposes of the Act is the net investment in rail enterprise 
as recorded in the books of the company. He said that the accuracy of its accounting 
records over the years in respect of investment effectively removes from the realm of 
controversy any question as to the present amount of net investment. 

He suggested that the amount of net investment in rail assets used in connection 
with a branch line is readily determinable Gross investment in a branch line, divided into 
groups of assets, is available from the books of the company. Similarly, both the gross 
and the net investment in the railway system are available from the records of the 

59 R.T.C. 



- 351 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



company for each group of assets. Net rail investment in a branch line is therefore 
obtained by applying to gross investment in a branch line, by groups, the ratio of the 
railway system net investment to railway system gross investment for each group of 
assets. 

Both EBS and the Governments of the Provinces proposed that net investment be 
used for any property which would be retained in service and for property variable with 
the off-line movement of branch line traffic. For on-line branch line property which 
would be retired if the line is abandoned, the railway should be allowed to include as a 
base for cost of capital only the value which the railway could derive from the property 
upon abandonment of the line, in other words, its net salvage value. As EBS expressed it: 

*'Since the assigned function of the investment sunk in an unprofitable branch line 
has no earning power, its value is reduced to the sole alternative, salvage. This value 
represents the best return the railway can experience from the investment." 

(c) Findings of the Committee 

Our findings in respect of cost of capital are made in the light of those made 
elsewhere in these reasons regarding branch line abandonment, passenger-train discon- 
tinuance and depreciation. In our opinion, the same general principles should be applied 
to both depreciation and cost of capital but there is an important difference which must 
be taken into account. 

This difference arises from the fact, noted at the beginning of this section, that, 
unlike depreciation expense, investment bases and rates to be used for calculating cost of 
capital are not prescribed under the Uniform Classification of Accounts. There is in fact 
no such factor as "normal" cost of capital which might be expected to apply uniformly in 
the absence of exceptions. 

In considering depreciation when computing actual loss for applications to abandon 
or discontinue under sections 314B and 3141 of the Railway Act, the Committee allows 
as an item of cost, the actual depreciation which had been charged in the accounts of the 
company. Such charges are based on the book values of depreciable assets and the rates of 
depreciation approved by the Committee. The rationale for this treatment is that at the 
time of the appUcation to abandon, the line or service is presumed to be an integral part 
of a "going concern" until proven otherwise. As such, it should earn depreciation to allow 
for capital consumption and — most relevant here — it should earn a return on the capital 
invested in it. This prescription would call for the normal depreciation charges and a cost 
of capital on the net investment in the Hne or service. 

However, as pointed out in the discussion of branch line abandonments, the group 
plan of charging and accumulating depreciation substantially overstates the rate at which 
depreciation actually occurs on most Hght-density branch lines. To account for this 
tendency toward cost overstatement, the Committee has found, as stated elsewhere in 
these reasons, that, as a general procedure for purposes of applications under sections 

59 R.T.C. 



- 352- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



314B and 3141 of the Railway Act, it will allow cost of capital only on the salvage value 
of property to be retired in the event of abandonment or discontinuance. 

In adopting such procedure as a general rule, the Committee is exercising its 
discretion under section 387A of the Act as to the amount that to it seems reasonable in 
the circumstances, to allow in respect of depreciation and cost of capital. In individual 
cases, the total allowance for these two factors of cost will be examined as a whole and 
adjustments may be made in either of the allowances for depreciation or for cost of 
capital so that the resultant total will, in the opinion of the Committee, be reasonable in 
the circumstances. 

If, however, the railway can develop depreciation charges and net investment ratios 
which reflect the specific aging characteristics of the branch Une or passenger service in 
question, the Committee will consider substituting such specific calculation in lieu of the 
general prescription for depreciation and cost of capital outlined above. 

For purposes of sections 314E and 314G, subsidy of branch lines, and section 314J, 
subsidy of passenger trains, the Committee has also adopted salvage value as the base for 
cost of capital, but for different reasons. At this point, it will have been determined that 
the line or service incurs an actual loss, but is to be retained in the public interest. The 
only value for which the public should be responsible, therefore, is the value which the 
railway could derive from the property had the Committee granted the railway's 
apphcation to abandon or discontinue. That value is salvage value for any property which 
otherwise could be retired. 

The foregoing prescription of salvage value does not apply to variable investment 
associated with the traffic moving to or from the subsidized branch line, or to investment 
variable with, but not solely related to a subsidized passenger train. Such property must 
continue in its present use regardless of the abandonment or discontinuance under 
question, and is entitled to earn a return on net book investment assigned as variable with 
the line, service or traffic in question. 

Similarly, the addition of any new investment to an uneconomic Hne or service 
under subsidy should also be entitled to a return on net book investment, with net invest- 
ment calculated for the specific property, rather than based on the system net-to-gross in- 
vestment ratios. Since such investment is made solely because of the pubhc requirement 
to retain the line or service, its full cost should be borne by the public through payment 
of subsidy. 

3) Rate of Return to Capital 

The question of adequacy of the return on capital has been argued in rate cases and 
before Royal Commissions, and has led to findings based on what was considered 
reasonable at the time. Similarly, a test of reasonableness appears in the direction given to 
the Committee by section 387A (1) of the Railway Act.: 

"In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for purposes of 
sections 314A to 314J, 317, 329, 334, 336, 387B and this section, there shall be 

59 R.T.C.

included such allowance on a periodic basis 

(a) for depreciation, and 

(b) in respect of the cost of any money expended, whether or not the expenditure 
was made out of borrowed money, 

as to the Commission seems reasonable in the circumstances." 

This direction was reflected in the Board's Cost Order which provided for 
"Category IV cost, being the cost of capital calculated on the investment and the rate 
approved by the Board". 

This Order did not commit the Board of Transport Commissioners to a particular 
base or rate for determining the cost of capital for purposes of different sections of the 
Railway Act, but maintained its freedom to make allowances in accordance with the 
direction in section 387A (1), "...such allowance ... as to the Commission seems 
reasonable in the circumstances". 

We consider it desirable in dealing with the subject of cost of capital to set out 
some of the regulatory background against which the parties presented evidence and 
argument in this Inquiry as to what base and rate the Committee should regard as 
reasonable for the purposes of the Railway Act. We will refer to some past regulatory 
decisions involving the rate of cost of capital and then present the principal approaches to 
the calculation of such rate by the parties and the findings of the Committee. 

(a) Past Regulatory Decisions 

The Board of Transport Commissioners, in general freight rate cases, adopted the 
Canadian Pacific Railway Company as the yardstick railway for determination of the 
allowable cost of capital on a financial requirements basis, i.e., the earnings required after 
operating expenses and provision for income tax in order to meet fixed charges and 
dividends, and provision of an allowance for surplus. This allowable cost of capital was 
expressed as a rate of return on the net rail investment, and amounted to 3%% in the 
General Freight Rates Judgment of December 27, 1957: Re General Increase in Freight 
Rates (1958) 76 CRTC 53. The amounts in that Judgment for the constructive year 1957 
were set out for the Canadian Pacific Railway at page 61 as follows: 

"For the purposes of this Judgment we are allowing a permissive level of net rail 



income, made up as follows: 

Fixed charges $13,038,000 

Dividends on Preference Stock 3,012,130 

Dividends on Ordinary Stock 17,567,870 

Surplus 15,235,000 

Additional allowance 2,400,000 

Permissive level of net rail income for the purposes of 

this Judgment $51,253,000 "

This amount of $51,253,000 related to the adjusted net rail investment for 1956 
resulted in a rate of 3%%. The reports of Canadian Pacific to the Board and the 
Commission for the years 1956 to 1968 demonstrate the following results:

The rate for the cost of capital was before the Board in a number of branch line 
abandonment appHcations and two or more applications in respect of commuter fares. In 
several branch line abandonment cases heard in the early 1960's a rate of 5% was applied 
to the value of net salvage on the branch line. The Board's Judgment in a branch line 
abandonment application during this period stated: 

"Although the matter of salvage is not a major consideration in evaluating an 
appUcation for abandonment, it should be noted that on a net salvage value of 
$115,200, with annual interest at 5% the return to the railway would be $5,760 
annually, which sum would add to the financial improvement to the railway as a 
result of abandonment of the line.": Re Canadian Pacific Railway Company 
McAuley Subdivision (1961) 51 JOR&R 579 at 590. 

In the last commuter fare case, a rate of 6% was used in lieu of 5% for the reasons 
given by the Board: 

"Cost of Money - $540,351 

The cost of money is calculated by applying a rate of 11.4%, which is the long 
term cost of money to the Canadian Pacific enterprise including provision for 
income tax, to the net depreciated value of the investment as shown hereunder:

Atlantic Railway Company (1967) 57 JOR&R 185 at 208. 

(b) Rate Base - Rate of Return Approach 

In the course of the hearing forming part of this Inquiry, two dominant and 
somewhat contradictory approaches to calculating rate of return to capital emerged. The 
first is the rate base — rate of return method advocated by Canadian Pacific and BBS. 
Essentially, this approach identifies the debt portion of a railway total net book 
investment and assigns to it the corresponding interest costs. The residual investment not 
covered by debt is presumed to be equity capital and receives a rate of return designed to 
reflect its relatively greater risk as compared with bonded debt. This return to equity is 
then virtually doubled to account for the tax Hability associated with it. The sum of these 
three payments, to debt (interest), to equity (profit) and to government (income tax) is 
related by ratio to the net book investment of the railway. That ratio is presumed to be 
the needed rate of return for all investment. 

The rates calculated by this method tend to be of the order of 10% to 12% before 
income tax and 6% to 8% after tax. 

Canadian National said that if its current values concept is not accepted by the 
Committee, the company would strongly support the EBS recommendation that 
Canadian National should use the Canadian Pacific rate for cost of capital for all purposes 
of the Act. 

In response to the advocacy of the rate base - rate of return method by EBS and 
the railways, Counsel for the Government of Manitoba argued that a yardstick properly 
applied to regulated utihties enjoying a monopoly, should not be applied to railways, 
because the revenue to be obtained from the prescribed rate cannot be obtained from 
large segments of the operation, so that captive shippers, less than carload shippers and 
the public treasury have to make up the difference. 



59 R.T.C. 



- 356- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Furthennore, the Provinces contended that the present rate base is inflated and 
unsuitable as a basis for capital requirements. Counsel for the Government of Manitoba 
said in respect of Canadian Pacific: 

"The book value of rail equity is overstated by the degree to which rail net 
investment is overstated. Past mistakes in investment policy, declines in demand for 
rail passenger and less than carload service, plus inadequate write-offs and 
retirement, result in too large a net investment base." 

Speaking on the same subject, Counsel for the Government of British Columbia 

said: 

"We submit it is important to insure that no excess capital is carried into these 
calculations. Sunk capital has already been fully discussed, but there is also inert 
capital which is recoverable, and it is either not earning at all or not earning its fair 
proportion of the profit that it ought to obtain." 

(c) Cash Flow Approach 

As an alternative to the rate base - rate of return approach, the Governments of 
the Provinces recommended a cash flow method. They argued that the conventional rate 
base method of computing cost of capital results in a rate of return which is excessive. 
The traditional approach, therefore, should be 

. . superseded by a method which gives appropriate weight to the relatively 
limited requirements of the railways for access to capital markets, as well as to their 
demonstrated ability to generate the preponderance of their capital needs from 
internal sources." 

The Governments of the Provinces argued that under the National Transportation 
Act, the Committee has little effective regulatory control over the level of rail rates or 
revenues. As a consequence, it is appropriate to use the return earned on unregulated 
traffic as a measure of the cost of capital to regulated traffic for avoidable cost as well as 
decisions involving compensatory rates. 

The cash flow method was defined in Provincial Exhibit P-1 as follows: 

"The cash costs of using capital are the annual (actual or average) costs of 
purchasing new capital equipment and rebuilding old capital equipment for the 
purpose of serving present and future levels of traffic. To these must be added the 
cash outlays needed to meet financial obligations, i.e., interest on debt and 
dividends consistent with the long-run expectations of stockholders. . . . Under the 
new method of measuring capital costs, depreciation charges would no longer be 
used, and the book value of net investment would be ignored." 

Thus it was argued that depreciation should be abandoned for all cost ascertain- 
ment purposes, and that the cost of capital should consist of the sum of annualized new 
investment expenditures plus a rate of return factor which covers the dividend and 
interest obligations of the railway. 

59 R.T.C. 



- 357- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The Provinces said that the cash flow approach would make use of railway capital 
budgets related to individual portions of rail traffic, which would show the amounts of 
gross capital expenditures per year plus a share of interest and dividends necessary to pay 
for attracting that flow from the corporate treasury. Thus heavily utilized portions of the 
rail plant would be allocated more investment per year than lightly utilized portions, or 
portions which are candidates for abandonment. 

Speaking in support of the cash flow method. Counsel for the Government of 
British Columbia said that it would assist in establishing variable costs and in establishing 
the amount of subsidies to be paid. He also suggested that it would overcome 
management inertia and offer no artificial incentive to delay the retirement of 
unproductive or obsolete assets. 

The application of the cash flow method advocated by the Governments of the 
Provinces yields a rate of return of 4.23% without provision for income tax. 

EBS objected to the cash flow approach on the grounds of circularity, that 
profitable railways would automatically justify high rates of return, and unprofitable 
railways would justify low rates. EBS said that to the extent these rates affect subsidies 
and rate levels they could then become self-fulfilling; an illogical result clearly against the 
public interest. 

(d) Findings of the Committee 

Of the various issues raised in the Inquiry, the rate of return to capital was one of 
the most controversial, most complex and least documented. 

Early in the hearing Canadian Pacific made formal application to the Committee for 
a ruling to the effect that the question of cost of capital would be the subject for full 
hearing at a later date and that the Committee would not, as part of the present Inquiry, 
make any finding regarding cost of capital other than an interim finding. The Committee 
did not accede to this application. 

In stating its refusal to grant the appHcation, the Committee gave its reasons as 
follows: 

"The Committee has been asked, at this stage of the proceedings, to restrict 
itself in the extent of the findings it will make relative to the cost of money, 
pending the outcome of a later pubUc hearing on that subject which we are asked to 
state will be held within six months. 

By section 38 7B of the Railway Act, we have the obligation to prescribe for any 
of the purposes of the Act the items and factors, including the cost of capital, 
which shall be relevant in the determination of costs. In fulfilling this obligation, to 
the extent we deem it proper and relevant to do so we are to have regard, among 
other things, to later developments (later than the findings of the Royal 
Commission on Transportation - the MacPherson Commission) in railway costing 

59 R.T.C. 



- 358 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



methods and techniques and to current conditions of railway operations. Thus 
section 387B speaks not only of the past but of both the present and the future; we 
conceive our function under it to be a continuing one. Indeed, the section makes 
provision in subsections (2), (3), (4) and (5) for change." 

After considering the views of the parties and the information available to support 
them, the Committee has decided not to include a fixed or definitive rate of return on 
capital in its findings, but rather to adopt certain principles and constraints in the 
computation of rate of return in the future. This procedure narrows considerably the 
scope of the Committee's discretion in determining "such allowance for the cost of 
capital as to the Commission seems reasonable in the circumstances", but does not 
eliminate it completely. It also permits the Committee to have regard among other things 
to "... later developments in railway costing methods and techniques and to current 
conditions of railway operations" as required by section 387B (1) of the Railway Act, as 
well as to constant changes in capital markets. 

The Govemments of the Provinces contended that because of the overstatement of 
the investment values of the railway property of Canadian Pacific any generally 
acceptable rate applied to such investment will result in a rate of return that is excessive 
when compared with the recent earnings record of Canadian Pacific. As the extent of 
overstatement of Canadian Pacific net investment cannot be accurately determined, it 
would be very difficult to fix a rate applicable thereto which would provide an 
appropriate rate of return. And yet, according to the Provincial submission, the company 
has made capital acquisitions of $1,279 million during the period from 1957 to 1966, 
$773 million of it in railway plant and equipment, most of it generated from depreciation 
charges. The contention that the true economic value of the Canadian Pacific net 
investment base is overstated is to some extent vaUd, as is demonstrated by the railway's 
desire to abandon a portion of its branch line and passenger property. Thus, the rate of 
return calculated by EBS would appear to be excessive. 

On the other hand, the Committee agrees with EBS that the cash flow approach is 
circular in that profitabiUty justifies a profitable rate of return and unprofitabihty 
generates an unprofitable rate. Also, we are not persuaded that the diversion of large 
amounts of capital from railway operations to other areas of investment necessarily 
indicates that the railway enterprise is a highly successful business investment. The 
diversion of capital could indicate exactly the opposite, that greater returns can be 
generated elsewhere, so that the railway operation is drained of cash in favour of more 
lucrative investment in other industries. 

Finally, the Provincial argument that the net investment base of Canadian Pacific is 
inflated can be turned against the Provinces' own cash flow approach. The final 
calculation under the cash flow method is to relate the accumulated annual capital 
requirements - debt service, dividends and capital expenditures - to net book 
investment. If, as the Provinces contend, this book investment base is inflated then this 
rate of retum will be too low relative to specific investment items which are not 
correspondingly inflated.

The issue before the Committee, however, is not to establish an overall rate of 
return to the Canadian Pacific net investment, but to determine the appropriate return on 
any individual investment which is effectively performing its function. 

As explained above, it would, in these reasons, be unwise for the Committee to 
prescribe a specific rate. Individual cases could no longer be considered in the light of 
current capital markets, of what "to the Commission seems reasonable in the 
circumstances" and of "later developments in railway costing methods and techniques 
and current conditions of railway operations". 

However, several general principles are hereby established by way of guide lines to 
the computation of an appropriate rate of return: 

(a) The rate of return to Canadian Pacific should be no lower than the composite 
embedded rate of interest for outstanding debt of Canadian Pacific. 

(b) The calculation of the rate of return should allow for a certain portion of 
equity capital in the capital structure of the railway. Because of the higher risk 
of equity capital and the need to retain earnings for capital additions, the 
return to the equity portion of the capital structure should normally be higher 
than current average interest cost. 

(c) For purposes of compensatory and maximum rate calculations (sections 317, 
329, 334 and 336 of the Railway Act), the computation of the rate of return 
should acknowledge the Hability for income tax on all earnings by equity 
capital regardless of whether the railway, as a system, paid income tax in that 
year. 

(d) Since no branch line or passenger- train service could incur an actual loss and 
still be liable for income tax, no allowance for income tax should be made in 
the computation of the rate of return to capital for purposes of branch Une 
abandonment (sections 314A through 314G) or passenger train discontinuance 
(sections 3141 and 314J of the Railway Act). 

(e) The rate of return should be lower than a rate calculated by means of the 
conventional rate base — rate of return method. The effect of inert assets in the 
Canadian Pacific net investment base is to inflate the equity portion of the 
railway's capital structure. Since equity normally requires a higher rate of 
return than debt - particularly if income tax is included - a return calculation 
using net book investment results in a rate which is higher than reasonable 
when applied to specific items of investment. 

The foregoing principles have been expressed in terms of Canadian Pacific which, 
according to the Railway Act, provides the cost of capital yardstick for all railways for 
purposes of the rate regulatory sections 317, 329, 334 and 336. After reviewing the 
present capital structure of Canadian National, we have concluded it should not be used 
as a basis for developing a cost of capital rate for sections 314A through 314J of the

Railway Act. EBS was of the same opinion. The Committee will, therefore, direct that 
the Canadian Pacific rate of return be appHed to Canadian National for all costing 
purposes under the Railway Act. 

In assigning a rate of return, the Committee must again consider the various 
purposes of costing under the Act. For the rate-related sections (sections 317, 329, 334 
and 336) and for applications to abandon branch lines (section 314B) or discontinue 
passenger-train services (section 3141), we have determined that costs shall be those of a 
"going concern", with normal depreciation. 

The Committee will therefore prescribe that the rate of return for the rate-related 
sections of the Act (sections 317, 329, 334 and 336) and for applications to abandon 
branch lines (section 314B) and discontinue passenger trains (section 3141), be the same 
except as pointed out earlier that no income tax should be included in an actual loss 
calculation under sections 314A through 31 4G and under sections 3141 and 314J. 

Summary of Findings 

The specific applications of rates of cost of capital in respect of sections 314A 
through 314J of the Railway Act will be as foUows: 

1. In computing "actual loss" for the purposes of appHcations to abandon branch lines 
under section 314B, or to discontinue passenger- train services under section 3141, 

(a) either 

(i) the rate of return on capital excluding any allowance for income tax, which, 
in the opinion of the Committee, is appropriate for Canadian Pacific at the 
time the application is made, shall be appHed to a portion of the net book 
investment, computed on the basis of the group plan of accruing depreciation, 
equal to the salvage value of the road property which the railway proposes to 
retire if the line is abandoned or the service discontinued; 

or 

(ii) the rate of return on capital excluding any allowance for income tax, which, 
in the opinion of the Committee, is appropriate for the Canadian Pacific at 
the time the appHcation is made, shall be applied to the net book investment 
of the road property which the railway proposes to retire if the line is 
abandoned or the service discontinued, provided the appHcant railway can 
develop depreciation charges and net investment calculations acceptable to 
the Committee as reflecting the specific aging characteristics of the road 
property ; 

(b) the rate of return on capital excluding any allowance for income tax, which, in 
the opinion of the Committee, is appropriate for Canadian Pacific at the time the 
application is made, shall be applied to the net book value of all other property 
which the Committee is satisfied is required in the operation of the line or service.

2. In computing "actual loss" for purposes of establishing subsidy payments under 
sections 3 14E, 31 4G or314J, 

(a) the rate of return on capital excluding any allowance for income tax which, in the 
opinion of the Committee, is appropriate for the Canadian Pacific at the time the 
computation is made, applied to a portion of the net book investment equal to the 
salvage value of road property which the Committee is satisfied could or would be 
retired if the line were abandoned or the service discontinued and which the 
Committee is satisfied is required for purposes of continued operation of the line 
or service; 

(b) where the Committee is satisfied that investments in new assets are necessary for 
the continued operation of the line or service, there shall be applied to the net 
book value of such investments the rate of return on capital excluding any 
allowance for income tax which, in the opinion of the Committee, is appropriate 
for the Canadian Pacific at the time the investments in new assets are made; 

(c) the rate of return on capital excluding allowance for income tax which, in the 
opinion of the Committee, is appropriate for Canadian Pacific at the time the 
computation is made, shall be appHed to the net book value of all other property 
which the Committee is satisfied is necessary for continued operation of the line 
or service. 

For the purposes of sections 317, 329, 334 and 336 of the Railway Act, the 
Committee will allow a rate of return on capital including allowance for income tax 
which, in its opinion, is appropriate for the Canadian Pacific applied to the net book 
value of assets which form part of the operation. 

With regard to railways other than Class I, the Committee has decided that the rate 
of return on capital, which it would judge to be appropriate for the Canadian Pacific in 
similar circumstances, should also be applied to these railways in respect of sections 314A 
to 314J, 317, 329, 334, 336, 387 A and 387B of the Railway Act. When there is evidence 
that such application to sections 314A to 314J would not be appropriate, a specific rate 
of cost of capital will be determined to reflect the individual characteristics of the railway 
in question. 

OTHER COST FACTORS 

While the factors of Depreciation and Cost of Capital have been dealt with 
individually in these reasons, a number of other cost factors collectively were the subject 
of considerable evidence and argument. The main factors in respect of which general 
agreement was not reached will be considered hereunder. They are: 

1 . Freight Car Depreciation 

2. Fuel Costs 

3. Multiple Unit Yard Switching 

4. General Overhead Expenses 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



5. Road Locomotive Costs 

6. Roadway Maintenance Express 

7. Train Costs. 

1. Freight Car Depreciation 

Differences exist in the method of allocating freight car depreciation on the 
basis of car miles (mileage or use- related) and/ or car days (time-related). Canadian 
National treats freight car depreciation as a solely time-related cost. Canadian Pacific, 
on the other hand, allocates 55% of the total depreciation on the basis of car days and 
45% on the basis of car miles. These percentages are from an Interstate Commerce 
Commission study of United States railroad companies. 

Recommendations have been advanced by several parties. 

Position of Canadian National 

Canadian National maintained that the charges to freight car depreciation are 
based on an annual depreciation rate which does not vary because of the mileage of 
the freight cars. The question of when to retire cars because of obsolescence is 
dictated by the timing of the need for repair. They contended that no freight car is 
ever retired because of use-related deterioration and thus there are no use-related, i.e., 
car-mile depreciation costs. All such use-related deterioration is subject to repair 
which would always be undertaken except when obsolescence, a time-related factor, 
justified retiring the car. 

Canadian National studies have shown that only approximately 4% of total 
service Hfe of a freight car can be related to car miles, and therefore depreciation is 
basically time-related. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces, in their suggested cost order, recommended 
adoption of the Canadian National method by which freight car depreciation is 
allocated on a time basis. 

Position of Canadian Trucking Associations 

Canadian Trucking Associations suggested that until the special studies are 
conducted, both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific should adopt the split 
between time-related and mileage-related depreciation which is now employed by 
Canadian Pacific. 

Position of EBS 

BBS favoured the Canadian Pacific approach based on time and use. In order to 
reduce the disparity between Canadian National and Canadian Pacific, EBS, however, 

59 R.T.C. 

- 363 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



would adjust the percentage distribution of 55% freight car days and 45% freight car 
miles to 77.5% car days and 22.5% car miles. EBS considered that this is an issue 
which urgently requires further research by both Canadian National and Canadian 
Pacific. 

Findings of the Committee 

Canadian National studies have shown that at least 4% of the total depreciation 
is related to car miles, indicating that freight car depreciation does have some element 
of mileage-related depreciation. 

The Canadian Pacific method assumes depreciation of the freight car fleet on the 
basis of both time and use. The issue is what should be the percentage split between 
time and mileage. 

Canadian Trucking Associations recommended that the present practice of 
Canadian Pacific (i.e., 55% time-related and 45% mileage-related) should be continued 
until further study has been completed. We do not agree with this in the light of the 
Canadian National study which indicated that 4% of total depreciation was 
mileage-related. There is a major difference between this 4% and the 45% developed 
by the Interstate Commerce Commission. 

Both railways should now allocate freight car depreciation on the basis of car 
days and car miles, the percentages being 80% car days and 20% car miles. At the same 
time the railways should conduct a study in depth of the causes of freight car 
deterioration under Canadian operating conditions. 

2. Fuel Costs 

The method used by Canadian National in developing the cost of fuel is an 
engineering technique known as the Davis formula. The Canadian Pacific method is 
based on statistics of actual fuel consumption per thousand gross ton miles for each 
train run. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

Counsel for the Government of Manitoba referred to the differences resulting 
from use of the two methods employed by each railway in costing movements of 
traffic between Montreal and Toronto: 

"I am suggesting very strongly to this Committee that, pending any studies, if 
this Committee intends to come up with a costing order that a uniform method 
of allocating fuel costs be adopted, that we don't get this kind of 50 per cent 
range in fuel costs relative to light and heavy loading traffic between the two 
railways." 

The Provinces' proposed cost order, in referring to fuel costs, would provide: 

59 R.T.C. 

- 364 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 9169 



"The application of the Davis formula shall be used to determine fuel 
consumption for which the fuel costs shall be ascertained." 

Position of EBS 

W. B. Saunders, when cross-examined by Counsel for Manitoba, declared that 
the Davis formula as applied in the United States was generally satisfactory. He also 
commented: 

"But we are talking about trying to get a figure that relates better to those 
operations, and I think the railways should test it before adopting it." 

On being reminded that Canadian National had tested and adopted the Davis 
formula, Mr. Saunders replied: 

"Well, it was not a very conclusive test in my opinion; it was a very limited test. 
But, nevertheless, I am not quarrelling with that, I am merely saying that I think 
it needs a critical look." 

Findings of the Committee 

The evidence presented on this item of cost has not established, to our 
satisfaction, that either the Davis formula as used by Canadian National or the method 
used by Canadian Pacific is the best. Indeed, Canadian National agreed that the Davis 
formula requires further research. 

Under these circumstances the Committee cannot adopt the Provincial sugges- 
tion that the Davis formula be imposed on Canadian Pacific for the sake of 
uniformity when further research might prove it to be inferior to the Canadian Pacific 
method. Nor do we consider that the Canadian Pacific method should be imposed on 
Canadian National. 

The railways have indicated their intention to conduct further research into the 
Davis formula, and we agree that this should be carried out as soon as it is feasible to 
do so. Until the Committee has received and analyzed the results of this study, each 
railway should continue to use its present method. 

3. Multiple Unit Yard Switching 

This is an area in which there is a marked difference in the operating practices of 
the two railways. Canadian National uses multiple locomotive units in yard switching 
on a clearly defined and fairly regular basis. As a result, a separate unit cost is 
developed for this purpose. 

Canadian Pacific employs multiple units in switching service only at certain 
points in certain yards which tends to be seasonal and variable with the volume of 
traffic. All switching locomotive costs are calculated on a locomotive mile rather than 
a unit mile basis. Only 2.3% of all switching miles is multiple unit and consequently 
the impact of not accounting for multiple unit movements is not heavy. 

59 R.T.C. 



- 365- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



EBS recommended that Canadian Pacific adjust its switching locomotive fuel, 
maintenance and depreciation costs to account for the impact of multiple units. 

Findings of the Committee 

Canadian Pacific should increase its switching miles by the percentage that 
multiple units are used in switching. This should lead to improved costing and is the 
practical solution to the problem under the circumstances prevailing at this time. 

4. General Overhead Expenses 

This expense category includes the following overheads: 

( 1 ) Joint Facihty and Equipment Rents 

(2) Other Railway Taxes 

(3) Traffic Expenses 

(4) General Expenses 

(5) Communication Expenses 

(6) Non-revenue Freight Expenses. 

The problem in developing unit costs for most of these expenses Hes in 
converting the long-run variable cost into numbers which can be assigned to individual 
traffic movements. Regression analysis is not generally suitable since charges are not 
broken down on an area or regional basis. Canadian National has been able to make 
some apphcation of regression analysis but it involves the use of several assumptions. 

The following quotation from Exhibit EBS-1 applies particularly to the costing 
of overhead expenses: 

"Given this long-run objective, it would be impossible to conduct variability 
studies over time to determine the effect of traffic changes. Even if there were a 
way of relating change in traffic to subsequent changes in cost over a number of 
years, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to exclude the influence of change 
in price level, technology and operating practices which are unrelated to the 
original change in traffic." 

We will consider the costing problems of General Overhead Expenses under the 
six stated headings: 

(1) Joint Facility and Equipment Rents 
Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

It is suggested by the proposed cost order, Provincial Exhibit P-3, Appendix 1, 
that the following direction be given: 

"The expenses of maintaining and operating each joint facihty shall be 
associated with the service units of all companies using the facility." 

59 R.T.C. 



- 366- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The Governments of the Provinces argued that, with modem data processing 
techniques and refinement of record keeping which was formerly not practical, the 
treatment of joint facility debits and credits should be refined. 

Position of EBS 

EBS accepted the procedure followed by Canadian National of excluding joint 
facihties and equipment rents except when individual cases indicate that either joint 
facilities or rented equipment will be used. EBS concluded that, while a great deal of 
research might yield a more refined result, the amounts of money involved do not 
justify the effort. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Provincial suggestion would involve the compHcated procedure of accu- 
mulating expenses and service units for each shared facility and combining the 
expenses and service units of the companies using the facilities. This procedure would 
create administrative problems that would burden the railways unduly. The 
Committee finds that the recommendation of EBS should be adopted and the same 
procedure followed by both railways. 

(2j Other Railway Taxes 

This account includes the following expenses: 

i) Real estate taxes 

ii) Provincial taxes 

iii) Company's portion of unemployment insurance 

iv) Company's portion of Canada Pension Plan 

v) Company's portion of Quebec Pension Plan 

Real estate taxes was the category of expense to which attention was directed during 
the Inquiry, and it is considered hereunder. 

Position of EBS 

EBS recommended that until further research can be undertaken, as an interim 
measure, real estate taxes should be charged directly to yard and train switching miles. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces argued that it would be wiser to study 
methods of assessment rather than to run mechanically through regression analysis. 



59 R.T.C. 



- 367- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Findings of the Committee 

The recommendation of EBS is based on regression models which Canadian 
Pacific made during the course of the Inquiry. The following regression models were 
run to test the variability of real estate taxes with different independent variables: 

Model 1 — Yard and train switching miles 
Model 2 — Track miles 

Model 3 — Gross ton miles freight and passenger 
Model 4 — Train miles 
Model 5 (a) — Yard and train switching miles 
Model 5 (b) — Track miles 

Model 5 (c) — Gross ton miles freight and passenger 
Model 5 (d) - Track miles 

Model 1 was the only one which proved to be statistically significant and 
appeared to explain a fairly significant portion of the variation in the dependent 
variable. EBS concluded that this reflects the fact that yards constitute the primary 
source of the tax burden and the regression indicated that as yard activity per 
switching mile increases, the tax burden increases proportionately more. EBS 
recognizes that this treatment fails to account for the tax burden of stations and office 
buildings, of which the former should be assigned to station costs and the latter to 
general overhead. 

For the years 1964, 1965 and 1966 the Canadian Pacific divisions of Toronto, 
Vancouver and Montreal accounted for shghtly over 50% of the real estate taxes of the 
company. It is within these divisions that there are large concentrations of office 
buildings, stations and yards. Both railways, in their branch line abandonment 
applications, include real estate taxes, indicating a fairly close relationship to roadway. 

Although a large part of the real estate taxes is incurred in yards and terminals, 
yard and train switching miles should not be burdened with these full amounts. 

Prior to these proceedings, Canadian Pacific assumed that real estate taxes were 
as variable as other system expenses. Canadian National treated them as completely 
fixed. The recommendation of EBS assumes that they are fully variable, based on the 
Canadian Pacific regression models. 

We consider that this is an instance in which logic should be substituted for 
regression results. EBS should, as the Provinces suggested, have considered the 
methods of assessment. These methods of assessment may have affected the statistical 
relationship found between yard and train switching miles and real estate taxes. The 
high variabihty may have been caused by differences in assessment rates in various 
municipalities. 

We will not adopt the EBS recommendation that as an interim measure real 
estate taxes be assigned as 100% variable with yard and train switching. Such an 



59 R.T.C. 



- 368 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



assignment would fail to reflect the taxes generated by stations, office buildings, shops 
and roadway. The best treatment of property taxes would be to isolate each taxable 
property accounting for more than, say $50,000 in tax payment annually. Any service 
using such properties would receive a direct allocation of taxes variable with use 
according to its proportion of the total use by all services. The remaining taxes would 
be separated into categories for roadway, yards, stations, office buildings, shops and 
other property and subjected to regression analysis to determine degrees of variability 
with different output units. 

Pending the rather extensive studies required for this treatment, the railways 
should allocate property taxes according to the Canadian Pacific assignment of the 
Road Property accounts (Accounts 1 through 47) for cost of capital calculations. 
Property taxes will therefore reflect the same variability with traffic as the Canadian 
Pacific gross investment in road property. 

Provincial sales taxes were not discussed during the course of the hearing, but we 
will comment upon them due to the different methods followed by the two railways. 
Canadian Pacific treats them as a general overhead ratio to other railway system 
expenses excluding certain of the overheads. Canadian National treats these expenses 
as fixed. 

Provincial sales taxes are incurred on materials purchased; they are as variable as 
the material expenses used in the railway operations. Each railway should develop a 
unit cost by establishing a ratio of these expenses to the railway system material 
expenses. 

(3j Traffic Expenses 

EBS described the procedures followed by Canadian National in assigning traffic 
expenses: 

"Freight sales expenses for each of 13 areas are analyzed by simple regression 
against revenue dollars originating in the respective areas without regard to 
commodity. This regression identified a constant portion of freight sales expense 
which is excluded from subsequent costing. Freight sales expenses related to 
regional offices were separated between fixed and partially variable portions by 
subaccount. The partially variable portion was then assumed to have the same 
percentage variability as area expenses relative to revenue dollars. System 
expenses were separated between fixed and variable by a selection of 
subaccounts and then divided by total freight revenue. This variable freight sales 
expense coefficient is then applied to the average systemwide revenue dollars 
per net ton-mile for each of the six commodity groups (grain, other agricultural 
products, animal products, mine products, forest products, and manufactures 
and miscellaneous) to develop the variable freight sales expense per thousand net 
ton-miles." 

59 R.T.C. 



- 369- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Canadian Pacific assigns traffic expense as an overhead charge against all other 
direct expenses. 

Position of EBS 

BBS found that the Canadian Pacific general overhead approach gives a 
variability of slightly over 70% and the Canadian National approach 66%. EBS 
concluded that this is realistic, but that the real problem is the assignment of traffic 
costs to different commodities. 

The following quotation is from Exhibit EBS-1 : 

"We find merit in the argument of Canadian Pacific, but we are also impressed 
with the need to recognize commodity characteristics in the assignment of 
traffic department costs. 

What is needed is some base per carload and/or per car-mile cost which would 
reflect the tracing, routing and tariff activities which are fairly common to all 
traffic. The purely freight sales function would be added to these costs and 
would be related to the commodity, possibly using the Canadian National 
method based on revenue per ton-mile. At the present time, Canadian Pacific 
does not have the refined subaccounts breakdowns which would permit the 
calculation of such a base carload and/or a car-mile cost, but fortunately the 
Canadian National's internal accounting system might permit development of 
such a cost." 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces argued that the traffic expenses do not vary 
to the degree claimed by the railways. The quotation hereunder from Provincial 
Exhibit P-1 explains their point of view: 

"Traffic expenses do not appear to vary with changes in traffic volume. Since 
the time of the MacPherson Commission study, traffic expense on the Canadian 
Pacific Railway has declined by 18 per cent when measured in constant dollars, 
while traffic volume has increased by 21 per cent. Canadian National traffic 
expenses have remained at the same level, while traffic volume has increased 28 
per cent. It appears obvious that since traffic expense on both roads has declined 
relatively in relation to traffic volume, measures by management designed to 
improve efficiency have a greater impact on traffic expenses than have changes 
in volume output." 

"A comparison of railways of varying sizes does indicate that to some degree 
traffic is related to the size of the railway to a much greater extent than to 
fluctuations of volume within each railway. Even this comparison does not give 
a satisfactory explanation of the factors influencing traffic costs. For example, 
Canada's third largest railway, with $50 million in annual revenue, reports no 
traffic expense." 
59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



The Provinces admitted that it is difficult to escape the conviction that traffic 
expenses must in some degree vary with the volume of business. They contended, 
however, that the Canadian National method of assigning traffic expenses on a ton- 
mile basis in branch line costing is unreaUstic, as no soHcitation expenses are incurred 
on a grain branch line for which an abandonment appHcation has been made. 
Nevertheless, they said the Canadian National method is clearly superior to the general 
overhead treatment of Canadian Pacific. The methods of both companies require 
further study and refmement in order to establish the variability of these expenses, 
and in the interim care must be taken to avoid the association of unrelated traffic 
expense with specific movements. 

Findings of the Committee 

We do not believe that the direct relating of traffic expense to traffic volume 
gives a proper measure of variability for costing purposes. Technological and operating 
practices should also be considered before this relationship can be accepted. The 
Governments of the Provinces, in using Canada's third largest railway. The Quebec, 
North Shore and Labrador Railway Company, as an example, demonstrated how 
operating conditions of a railway must be taken into account when analyzing 
variability of traffic expenses. This railway was constructed for the main purpose of 
transporting iron ore and would not incur traffic expenses to the same degree as the 
Class I railways, since it is not required to solicit ore traffic. 

Traffic expense includes soliciting traffic, routing and car tracing services, rate 
negotiation and tariff pubHcation. Ideally, each of these elements should be related to 
the independent variable giving rise to it, but, due to the variety of traffic, the 
allocation cannot easily be made. 

The Canadian National method of relating traffic expenses to revenue on a net 
ton-mile basis is practical, but has the weakness of over-ernphasizing distance as a 
cost-causing element, even though several of the functions covered by traffic costs are 
largely unrelated to length of haul. 

The Canadian Pacific method fails to make any allowance for differences in 
traffic expense among commodities and this is its central weakness. 

The sample branch line costing performed during the course of the Inquiry 
revealed significant differences in the results of the two methods employed by the 
respective Class I railways. On one of the sample lines costed, for example, the 
Canadian Pacific method yielded traffic expense of $34,352, while the Canadian 
National treatment resulted in costs of only $7,318 for the same traffic. It is apparent 
that such disparities in the results of the two methods require that some common 
treatment be developed for both railways. It is also apparent, however, that there is no 
simple method of allocating traffic expenses. Further research is necessary and this 
was advocated during the hearing.

AUGUST 1969 



Although we have reservations in respect of the Canadian National method, it 
does give some effect to commodities transported and we consider it preferable to the 
Canadian Pacific method. 

Until further research can be carried out, Canadian Pacific should adopt the 
Canadian National method of assigning traffic expense by commodity groupings. If 
Canadian Pacific cannot develop the necessary statistics from its records, it can use 
the Canadian National percentage variability with revenue in computing its own unit 
costs. However, we have not heard any evidence from either railway which persuades 
us that grain originating and terminating on branch lines proposed for abandonment 
incurs any costs which fall under the category of traffic expense. Accordingly, we have 
decided that traffic expense should be excluded from the costing of grain traffic unless 
the railway can demonstrate that the grain traffic in question actually involves 
functions covered by traffic expense. 

(4) General Expenses 
Position of EBS 

EBS noted that the Canadian Pacific method of using a general overhead ratio 
assumes the same variability for general expenses as for all other system expense, i.e., 
about 75% variable. Canadian National, by means of a detailed subaccount analysis, 
including regression of area and regional expense groups, developed a percentage 
variability of about 55%. 

Canadian Pacific's regressions of 20 United States railroads resulted in a high 
correlation between general expenses and various measures of traffic, particularly 
revenue ton-miles, and a very low correlation with track miles. These regressions 
favoured acceptance of the higher general overhead ratio used by Canadian Pacific. 

EBS recommended that both railways review their bases for treatment of general 
expense. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces concurred in the EBS recommendation that 
both railways review their bases for treatment of general expense. They pointed out, 
as in the case of traffic expenses, that general expenses had decreased in terms of 
constant dollars, while traffic had increased since the days of the MacPherson 
Commission, which would indicate that these expenses are not variable with traffic. 

Position of Canadian National 

Counsel for Canadian National explained that the variabiHty of Canadian 
National area and regional expenses is obtained from regression equations which 
are developed from data pertaining to Canadian National operations. He argued that 
this is certainly not outweighed by the evidence of a regression equation developed for 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



20 United States railroads. Canadian National had agreed to assume that system 
headquarters expenses were as variable as the weighted sum of area and regional 
expenses, but expected that further analysis would likely reveal a lower, rather than 
higher, variability. This yields a total variability of 53% for Canadian National. 

Canadian National suggested that it continue to use the results of its analysis for 
all purposes of the Act until such time as further research indicated the need for 
change. 

Findings of the Committee 

We agree that results of regression equations developed from Canadian National 
data should not be outweighed by the result of a regression developed from data of 
United States railroads. We do not agree with the Provincial position that because 
general expenses in terms of constant dollars have decreased while traffic has 
increased, such expenses should be treated as not variable with traffic. 

As noted earlier, the Canadian Pacific method yields a variability of about 75%, 
while the Canadian National shows a variability of about 55%. We would not expect 
both railways to arrive at the same variability due to such elements as different 
operating practices and traffic densities. In particular, Canadian Pacific contends that 
its internal budgeting practices give its General expenses a higher degree of variability 
than those of the Canadian National. We agree that such differences may exist, but, 
because the Canadian Pacific method assumes rather than tests the variability of these 
expenses, it provides no indication of their appropriate allocation to traffic. The 
difference between the variabiHty of the two railways should not be as much as 20 
percentage points. 

There is little question that Canadian National has developed a more precise 
treatment of these expenses, so that its estimate of variabiHty is more acceptable than 
that of Canadian Pacific. Logic would suggest that the salaries and expenditures of 
administrative offices should expand or contract at a rather slower rate than the 
expansion and contraction of traffic. 

The Committee has decided that the Canadian Pacific method imposes a rather 
arbitrary treatment of these expenses, and that a reasonable adjustment is to reduce 
the expense allocation from 75% to 60% variable pending results of further research 
indicating need for a change. 

(5) Communication Expenses 
Position of EBS 

The position of EBS is stated in Exhibit EBS-1 : 

"The present method of treating communications by the two railways yields a 
variability with traffic about 55 per cent on the Canadian National and 70 to 75 
per cent on the Canadian Pacific. In this case, the Canadian National's method is

clearly preferable, since it permits an evaluation of the assignment of each 
subaccount to its causes. We have conducted such an evaluation and find we 
cannot agree with the assignments made by the Canadian National. Specifically, 
we question whether dispatchers' phones should be considered fixed rather than 
assigned the same variability as dispatching expense. Nor do we agree that Morse 
should be regarded as fixed solely because it is under-utilized. Reductions in 
traffic would probably hasten the total abandonment of this communications 
system, as increases in traffic might delay it. Finally, yard phones should be 
variable with yards, which are in turn variable with yard switching-miles. If these 
three fixed elements are made variable, the over-all account group becomes 
about 90 per cent variable with labour or 70 per cent variable with traffic. The 
variability levels of the two railways are then about the same, and the 
differences in method can be ignored." 

Position of Canadian National 

Canadian National stated that this matter is not important numerically, but 
agreed with BBS that yard telephones should be treated as being variable with yard 
switching miles. 

The company states its position to be flexible in respect of dispatching phones 
and Morse. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee accepts the suggestion of BBS that both railways use a 
percentage of 70% variabiUty with traffic. We are not satisfied that sufficient study has 
been made of this matter. We direct that further research be conducted and the results 
be provided to the Committee at the earhest date possible. 

(6) Non-revenue Freight Expenses 

This has been dealt with under "Areas of General Agreement". 

5. Road Locomotive Costs 

Canadian National has developed costs for road locomotives on the basis of 
diesel unit miles for freight and passenger under the following horsepower groupings: 

1. Under 800 H.P. 

2. 800- 1200 H.P. 

3. Over 1200 H.P. 

Canadian Pacific has recently conducted research into the development of road 
locomotive costs by diesel unit miles and has developed costs on this basis for the 
following horsepower groupings: 

1. Freight diesel unit mile cost 1000 - 1200 H.P. 

2. Freight diesel unit mile cost 1500 - 1800 H.P.

3. Freight diesel unit mile cost 2000 - 2500 H.P. 

4. Freight diesel unit mile cost 3000 H.P. 

5. Passenger diesel unit mile cost. 

This replaces the previous use by the company of horsepower miles to measure these 
costs. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces recommended that the railways should 
calculate locomotive costs by engine type related to the gallons of fuel consumed by 
each type. This procedure would compensate for differences in the type of work 
which locomotives perform and for the physical characteristics of the specific section 
of track on which such work is done. This procedure would not account directly for 
wheel wear which is related to the distance the locomotive travels, but it was argued 
that wheel wear is indirectly related to fuel consumption. 

Position of EBS 

EBS agreed that the energy concept suggested by the Provinces has great merit. 
They recommended, however, that both railways should continue to use diesel unit 
mile costs based on horsepower size groupings. This will recognize both utilization and 
differences in cost per horsepower at varying locomotive sizes. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Canadian Pacific horsepower groupings, as noted above, appear to be 
reasonable; the company does not own any locomotive sizes outside of these 
groupings. For passenger locomotives, a single cost is developed since only locomotives 
of 1400 H.P. and 1800 H.P. are used on an assigned basis for passenger service. We 
agree with the revised Canadian Pacific procedure and direct that Canadian National 
expand further its horsepower groupings for locomotives over 1200 horsepower. 

Both railways should immediately begin accumulating the necessary statistics to 
test whether locomotive costs based on fuel consumption are more appropriate than 
present procedures. 

6. Roadway Maintenance Expenses — A/C 202 Complex 

There were three main areas of contention under this head: 

(1) Inclusion of account 208 Tunnels, Bridges and Culverts in the 202 Complex 
of Accounts for costing purposes. 

(2) Normalization of expenses. 

(3) Inclusion of caboose and locomotive gross tons in the total gross ton miles 
used for unit costing purposes. 

59 R.T.C. 

- 375 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1%9 



We will deal with each of these items separately. 

(1) Inclusion of Account 208 in 202 Complex 

Both Canadian Nation'al and Canadian Pacific include account 208 in the 202 
complex of accounts for unit costing purposes. The Provinces contended that it should 
not be included. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Provincial position was indicated by the following from Exhibit P-1 : 

"We recommend that this account be excluded from cross-section regression, 
and that it and perhaps other similar accounts be assigned geographically. 
Expenditures in account 208 would seem to depend on linear feet of tunnels, 
bridges and culverts, as a measure of size; to a smaller degree than other 
accounts on volume of traffic, and hardly at all on route miles or grade and 
curvature. The geographical assignment is important in the interest of reaHsm. If 
the expense of maintaining the Connaught tunnel, for instance, varies in part 
with volume of traffic, it does not vary with traffic between Montreal and 
Toronto." 

Position of Canadian National 

The position of Canadian National was stated during the hearing: 

"Canadian National has included account 208 tunnels in its 202 complex of 
accounts, explaining track and roadway maintenance expenses, because this 
makes a complete and natural unit of expense and would not involve any 
prorating of expenses to various accounts. Canadian National does not agree that 
account 208 tunnels should be arbitrarily excluded from the road maintenance 
function, and it does not agree on the matter of geographical assignment, as this 
seems to imply that account 208 tunnel maintenance is one hundred per cent 
variable with traffic." 

Fmdings of the Committee 

There is another issue relating to account 208 which the parties scarcely 
mentioned. Whether account 208 is assigned geographically or on a system average 
basis is relevant only if it is variable with traffic. A specific determination of the 
variability of this account has not been made because it is normally buried in the 
account 202 complex for which a composite variability is determined by regression 
analysis. The railways should, therefore, analyze this account independently to 
determine the extent of its variabiHty. If it has a reasonably high degree of variabihty, 
there must be some recognition of the obvious regional disparities in the amount of 
tunnehng and bridging. The exact method by which these regional differences can be

AUGUST 1969 



incorporated into the costing procedure will have to be worked out between the 
railways and the Committee staff. In the meantime, the account should be excluded 
from the account 202 complex. 

(2) Normalization of Expenses 

Canadian National has used five years' experience, and Canadian Pacific three 
years' experience in developing road maintenance expenses of the 202 complex group. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces advocated averaging of data for road 
property maintenance and associated service units over a five-year period. 

Position of Canadian Pacific 

Canadian Pacific indicated that it did not object to using a five-year average, 
although a three-year average was just as useful. However, Canadian Pacific objected to 
the immediate introduction of a five-year average at the present time since data prior 
to 1964 are not readily available. 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific suggested that, in connection with abandonment 
apphcations to be heard in the immediate future, three-year averages should be used; 
after March 1, 1969, four-year averages; and after March 1, 1970, five-year averages. 

Position of EBS 

BBS said that it would be difficult to define even broadly the length of the delay 
in the impact of traffic on maintenance costs, so that one must assume that the 
relationship of historical output units to present costs can be explained adequately by 
the use of averaged expenses and output units for the previous three to five years. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee agrees with the suggestion of the Provinces that a five-year 
average for roadway maintenance expense should be used by both railways, and that, 
in the case of Canadian Pacific, this procedure should be implemented in stages as 
suggested by its Counsel. 

(3) Gross Ton Miles 

In the development of unit costs where gross ton miles are used as the 
independent variable, Canadian Pacific excluded gross ton miles for caboose and 
locomotives, while Canadian National included them. Since the hearing, Canadian 
Pacific has revised its method and now includes locomotives and cabooses in gross ton 
miles. This results in a measure of agreement which the Committee finds acceptable 
for costing purposes.

7. Train Costs 

Train costs include items such as train crew wages, train control expenses (i.e., 
signal maintenance, signal operation and dispatching), other train expenses and 
locomotive costs. At present, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific calculate train 
costs by train run in each direction (east and west) and average them for a composite 
train. These costs are then divided by the average of gross ton-miles in both directions 
to arrive at a cost per gross ton-mile which is used as a basis for the allocation of train 
costs to traffic in either direction. 

Suggestions were made by several of the parties that the allocation of these train 
costs should not be related only to one independent variable, i.e., gross ton-miles, but 
also to car miles, train lengths, carloads and several others. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces recommended in Exhibit P-1 that: 

"The railways should determine the circumstances under which train-miles are a 
function of (1) ton miles, (2) car-miles, and (3) train switching hours, and the 
degrees of variabihty of train-miles with these causative factors, and assign 
train-mile costs accordingly. The possibiHty that other service units such as yard 
switching minutes, may also be less than 100% variable with traffic should be 
examined." 

They also argued that train-miles are limited by gross ton-miles only to the 
extent that grade and curvature limit the tonnage which can be hauled by a given 
locomotive. This limitation, however, can be overcome by using several diesel units so 
that the ultimate limit on train size may be the length of passing sidings and the size of 
receiving yards. The appropriate apportioning factor to take this into account would 
be train length or number of cars. An examination of operating practices would be 
necessary to decide whether to use tonnage, train length, train switching, number of 
cars and the like. 

Counsel for the Government of Manitoba stressed the same point during the 
hearing, when he said that "... limitations on trains today is not tonnage but cars and 
length of sidings and the length of train, and not the tormage." 

Position of Canadian National 

Canadian National expressed the opinion that for each "through" and "way" 
freight train the following must be resolved and quantified: 

1 . The best estimator of train trips, cars or tons. 

2. The best estimator of locomotive trips, cars or tonnage. 

3. The probabiHty that traffic in one direction will cause a round trip or will 
ride "free". 

59 R.T.C. 

- 378- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



4. The impact of changes in volume and its seasonal variation. 

5. The effect of traffic of varying service requirements. 

6. The absence of sufficient data of many trains for analysis and derivation of 
numerical answers. 

7. The problems of changing speeds, siding lengths, diesel sizes and traffic mix. 

It was the opinion of Canadian National that no hard and fast rules or methods 
can be prescribed since the railways are passing through an era where new methods are 
being developed by means of research and electronic data processing. 

Previous Canadian National studies had disclosed that manifest trains are limited 
by the number of cars, since delivery time is adversely affected by much car 
classification. These studies also indicated that drag trains, on the other hand, are 
limited by tonnage. 

Position of Canadian Pacific 

Canadian Pacific is currently conducting a detailed study of train costs by means 
of multiple regression analysis using various independent variables such as speed, tons, 
train length and car loads in order to find a suitable method of allocating train costs. 
This study includes over 2000 trains moving to or from Montreal and Toronto in the 
East and Vancouver in the West. 

Position of Canadian Trucking Associations 

Canadian Trucking Associations recommended that the assignment of the train 
mile costs be subject to continuing study until a satisfactory approach is found for the 
prorating of train mile costs to the appropriate cost causing variables. 

Position of EBS 

The recommendation of EBS was contained in Exhibit EBS-1 : 

"It is relatively simple to identify the characteristics of the trains which handle 
the study traffic, but there are questions as to how to assign the resulting train 
costs to particular traffic. The Canadian Pacific is planning further research on 
whether to distribute such costs over the gross tons or the number of cars in the 
train." 

"The Canadian National studies indicate that the decision to run trains may be 
caused by either gross tons or number of cars to be moved and that this differs 
by the type of train and even by individual train run. Accordingly, the best 
resolution which can be suggested at this point is that train costs should be 
assigned either on a gross ton-mile or a car-mile basis according to the individual 
characteristics of the train under analysis. The railways should be required to 
specify which method they use and to explain why it was selected in each 
instance."

Findings of the Committee 

There are two problems involved here, one of which is the averaging of costs in 
both directions by train run and the other is to find the basis of assigning train costs to 
particular traffic. 

The difficulty in averaging train costs in both directions stems from the criticism 
that it burdens the traffic in the light direction with a part of the cost which is related 
to the traffic in the heavy direction. The return of locomotives and crew is in the 
nature of a joint cost. An attempt to assign it by direction would create an 
administrative burden and the averaging of hght and heavy directions appears to be a 
reasonable method of dealing with the problem, and the Committee so finds. 

The second problem is determination of the basis of assigning train costs to 
particular traffic. The Committee accepts the recommendation of EBS that, as an 
interim measure, the railways should develop train costs on both a car mile and a gross 
ton mile basis and apply the appropriate unit according to the individual circum- 
stances of the traffic being analyzed. At the same time, both Canadian National and 
Canadian Pacific should continue to study this matter in detail and report the results 
to the Committee. Consideration should be given to variables such as car miles, gross 
ton miles, train switching hours, length of train, and length of sidings. 



ATTRIBUTION OF OUTPUT UNITS 

During the course of the Inquiry, proposals were made respecting the methods used 
to determine the number of output units associated with or attributed to a particular 
traffic movement. These output units are service units which measure the work 
performed, e.g.: 

Ton miles Switching minutes 

Car miles Road diesel unit miles 

Car days Gallons of fuel 

Train miles Carloads 

The cost of the movement is determined by multiplying the output units by the 
appropriate unit costs. Some of the output units can be directly attributed to a traffic 
movement while others must be estimated on the basis of special analyses. Any 
deficiencies in such analyses could contribute to an over-statement or under-statement of 
costs. 

In the opinion of the Committee there is particular need for further study of the 
methods used to determine: 

Empty return ratio and car days; 

Yard and train switching minutes; 

Multiple car switching.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



1. Empty Return Ratio and Car Days 

The empty return ratio has reference to the movement of the empty car and the 
degree to which it is properly chargeable to the movement of the loaded car. With 
specialized equipment in assigned service, there is normally a 100% empty return 
movement. Where there is equal demand for the same type of car in both directions, 
there is no empty movement. Usually there is an imbalance of demand and an 
equitable assignment of empty car miles and car days must be made to the loaded car 
movement. Empty return ratios are generally developed by train run from actual 
records. Empty car miles are divided by the loaded car miles resulting in an empty to 
loaded ratio. For a particular traffic movement the respective empty return ratios are 
apphed for each train run involved in order to estabHsh the empty car miles and car 
days. 

Car days assigned to a traffic movement consist of the number of days required 
in transit from origin to destination and for the empty return movement plus the car 
days required for positioning, loading, unloading, and for idle time including 
unserviceabihty. 

When cars are assigned solely to a particular traffic movement, both railways use 
the actual car days for the complete cycle. There was no disagreement among the 
parties on this point. 

The problem arises when cars are in general service and are not permanently 
assigned to a particular traffic movement. The following were the positions taken on 
this problem by the parties. 

Position of Canadian Pacific 

Canadian Pacific maintains a record by train run of the loaded and empty car 
miles by direction for 1 1 car categories. The percentage of empty to loaded car miles 
is developed from these records and this percentage is appUed to the en route car days 
and car miles to establish the empty return movement. 

Car days are developed by Canadian Pacific in four steps: 

(i) Car days at origin and destination 

Canadian Pacific allows 4 car days at origin and 4 days at destination, 
which reflects the amount of time required to position, load and unload 
the car in question. When cars are interchanged with another rail-carrier, 
the number of car days at either the origin or destination point, where the 
interchange is made, is reduced to half a day to reflect the elimination of 
loading or unloading and reduce positioning time. 

(ii) Loaded car days en route 

The number of car days of the load en route from origin to destination, 
including the terminal time required for processing at intermediate 

59 R.T.C. 



- 381 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



terminals, are computed on the basis of average number of miles operated 
per day for the type of car in question. 

(Hi) Empty return ratio 

The loaded car days en route are multiplied by the composite empty 
return ratios by train run to produce the number of related active car days 
associated with the movement in question. 

(iv) Idle car days including unserviceability 

The total active car days developed by the steps above are increased by a 
percentage factor based on system experience, to reflect the related idle 
and unserviceable days associated with the movement under study. 

Canadian Pacific is undertaking a loaded car movement study, the details of 
which are as follows: 

"A loaded car movement study is being undertaken on a system-wide basis to 
determine the loaded car miles and car days and the related empty car miles and 
car days associated with all car movements. This study is identifying the actual 
empty car miles and car days incurred in placing an empty car in position for 
loading, the actual loaded movement car days and the subsequent empty mileage 
and car days once the car is unloaded. The number of car types being considered 
in this study is 43. The analysis is considering car movements between 434 
origin and destination points. This procedure thus allows for the specific 
determination of car cycles for over 8 million combinations of car type, origin 
and destination. These points were selected on the basis that they generated and 
received at least 1200 loads per year. Those points which did not generate or 
receive this number were grouped together by a subdivision, the subdivision 
being the largest grouping considered in this study. Divisional points were 
separated and dealt with as separate operating units. The sample being used in 
the computer study is equivalent to 40 per cent of annual car movements made 
by Canadian Pacific. The post and prior empty movements for each loaded 
movement will be equitably distributed between the prior loaded movement and 
the subsequent loaded movement. This study will be used in the determination 
of car days and car miles for branch Hne abandonment and compensatory rate 
studies and will replace the present methods of determining car days and empty 
car miles. This system should be operative by late 1969." 

Position of Canadian National 

Canadian National uses two methods to estabHsh empty car miles attributable to 
a specific loaded movement. 



59 R.T.C. 



- 382- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



( i) Car tracing 

Through a sample of carloadings, by car type, average empty car miles 
prior to loading have been developed for each terminal across the system. 
This is basically an historical average by point of origin and car type. 

(ii) Imputed empty car miles 

An historical average flow pattern of cars, by car type, is being developed 
(for certain train runs) by relating the number of loads and empties moving 
in each direction through key points on the system. Detailed information is 
just now becoming available to allow completion of these studies and it is 
anticipated that this method of determining empty car miles will soon be 
used more extensively. 

To compute car days assigned to a particular traffic movement Canadian 
National also uses two methods: 

(i) Car tracing 

Canadian National develops from historical records the total car cycle 
based on the performance of cars which actually handled the traffic. The 
cycle is developed from the time a car is made empty after a previous loaded 
move to the time a car is made empty after the loaded move being costed. 
This method is generally used for large volume movements. 

(ii) Imputed car cycle 

If no special conditions are attached to the traffic under study, the car 
days are generally imputed as follows: 

— time between customer's siding and classification yard — a minimum of 6 
hours in each direction at both origin and destination. This time may vary 
considerably at each terminal depending on shipper's location and the 
service rendered. An allowance for standby time at the loading terminal is 
also added when dictated by an irregular loading pattern; 

— loading and unloading time - 2 days each since time in excess of this is 
covered by demurrage payments; 

— loaded transit time — based on average running times for scheduled 
freights as per time tables; 

— empty transit time is also based on average running times as shown in 
time cards. The amount charged to a particular movement is the empty 
transit car days multiplied by the empty return ratio applicable to the 
particular movement ratio of empty car miles in one direction to loaded 
car miles in the other direction). 



59 R.T.C. 



- 383 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Additional allowance, when appropriate, is made for bad order time (normally 
5%), seasonal traffic fluctuations, probability of Saturday and Sunday time on 
customer's siding, cleaning, scaling, connections with other trains and the like. 

Position of EBS 

EBS was of the opinion that the railways were undertaking substantial 
improvements in their calculation of empty retum ratio and, eventually, automatic car 
identification would permit very refined computerized calculations of empty return 
ratios for each car type and for each movement. EBS stated "... that most of the 
current problems involved in developing empty return mileage and days will be 
overcome as these new reporting systems go into effect." 

EBS concluded that the assignment of car days to individual movements has 
hitherto been based on assignment of a variety of factors having little statistical 
support. As with empty retum ratio, this difficulty should be resolved within the next 
few years as the automatic car identification system is initiated on each of the 
railways. Once this system is operating, it will be possible to draw samples of specific 
movements and calculate with a high degree of precision the actual car days required 
for each car within the sample. In the interim, the objective should be stated as 
seeking to identify the car cycle associated with the study traffic; the railways should 
file a detailed description of the method actually used in each case. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces were of the opinion that the methods of 
determining empty retum ratios and car days could be improved now and it is not 
necessary to wait for the introduction of automatic car identification. They noted that 
both railways are giving considerable attention to improvement of their methods. 
Therefore, they thought that before either railway introduces a particular technique or 
point of view, the Committee should guide them to a common, uniform treatment. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee will direct the railways to continue their development of new 
methods of attribution. In developing these methods, car movements should be traced 
from actual car records in order to determine a representative assignment of car days 
for each movement. Allowances should be made for repair time, seasonaHty, week-end 
or holiday layovers, cleaning, weighing and the like. All systems of car tracing should 
show not only the dates indicating time spent at stations of origin and destination, but 
also the dates when cars either passed through or were stored at key points. 

Until the results of these studies can be implemented, each railway should 
continue to follow its present method and ensure that a detailed description of the 
method is on file with the Committee. The Committee recognizes, however, that in 



59 R.T.C. 



- 384- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



certain instances specific empty car day and car mile assignments may be needed in 
order to reflect the particular characteristics of the traffic under study. 

2. Yard and Train Switching Minutes 

The methods used by the two Class I railways in developing switching minutes 
are described hereunder: 

Canadian Pacific Method 

Switching minutes appHcable to a movement of traffic are developed from a 
number of studies conducted over the past several years across the Canadian Pacific 
system. These studies included all large terminal points and a representative number of 
intermediate and smaller yards. Special studies were made to determine car handling 
times at origin points. 

Switching minutes appHcable to a particular car movement under study are 
developed by tracing the movement of that car or block of cars from origin to 
destination and applying the switching minutes necessary to process the cars through 
the origin, intermediate and destination points. To reflect the empty movement an 
empty return movement percentage is added to the switching minutes of the cars at 
intermediate points. When traffic is moving in assigned service in lots of about 20 cars 
or more, specific switching minutes are appUed. 

In the summer of 1967, Canadian Pacific launched a four-year major study at all 
terminals, intermediate size yards and train switching at branch line points. The period 
of study at each location is one week. The information collected from these studies 
such as car numbers, operational times of the cars handled for switching and the times 
of receiving instructions, yard delays and other factors is being processed through its 
computer in order to develop precise handUng and the time required for various 
commodities. As the study program progresses across the system and additional data 
are made available, these results will be incorporated into the costing system. 

Canadian Pacific converts train switching minutes into miles by a factor of 6 
miles per hour. Except for fuel and crew - included in train run costs - train 
switching costs per mile are presumed to be the same as yard switching mile costs. 

Canadian National Method 

Canadian National approaches yard switching by an examination of its many 
components, including classification, yard transfer, industrial transfer, industrial 
spotting, cleaning, scaling, icing, interchange and bad order. Detailed field studies were 
conducted at all major terminals and representative lesser terminals to develop average 
switching minutes applicable to each component for each yard. By analyzing the 
physical movement of a car throughout a terminal in order to determine which of these 
components apply to it, appropriate yard engine time is, thus, ascertained for a specific 

59 R.T.C. 

- 385 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



movement. In terminals where no detailed studies have been carried out, experience 
from other locations and analyses of yard assignments are used to determine a realistic 
time allotment. 

Canadian National argued that its present yard studies are adequate for present 
requirements, but, when progress in data reporting reaches the stage of making it 
economically feasible to study every yard regularly, the company intends to do so. 

In the case of train switching, Canadian National calculates a system average by 
dividing total train switching miles by total carloads originating and terminating at 
way stations. This system average of train switching miles is then converted to 
switching minutes at the rate of 6 miles an hour and is applied to each carload that 
originates or terminates at way stations. Canadian National assigns road locomotive 
costs to train switching. This treatment differs from the Canadian Pacific, which uses 
yard switching unit costs for all train switching elements except fuel and crew wages. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces pointed to what they considered to be three 
weaknesses in the railway method of calculating yard switching minutes. First, the use 
of average yard switching minutes does not recognize the widely varied physical 
characteristics and consequent differences in operating efficiency of individual yards. 
Second, when the proportion of each yard's time spent on each function (classifica- 
tion, industrial switching, transfer and miscellaneous) is not properly considered, the 
results of such averaging are open to question. Third, the use of average yard switching 
minutes makes Uttle allowance for traffic that requires limited or extensive switching. 

The Provinces recommended that the railways determine switching minutes per 
car for each yard large enough to require switching engine assingments and for each of 
the functions performed by that specific yard. Such studies should be revised in order 
to reflect changes in traffic patterns and operating characteristics. 

With reference to train switching minutes and costs, the Provincial argument was 
that no recognition is given to the differences between yard switching and train 
switching. The results of yard switching are applied to train switching and this 
indicates inadequate recognition of physical factors such as train switching locations, 
the gradient at locations where trains must stop for switching and the distance the 
engine must travel in order to pick-up or set-out cars. Consequently, train switching 
times can be grossly understated or overstated. 

The Governments of the Provinces recommended that the Committee and the 
railways institute an investigation into train switching which should be independent of 
yard switching studies. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee finds that the railways recognize the problem of identifying 
switching time with traffic movements and are making good progress toward a 

59 R.T.C. 



- 386- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



solution. Switching studies have been conducted for a large percentage of the yards, 
and it is expected that the railways will soon complete studies of the remaining yards. 
Both railways should furnish the Committee with current copies of their switching 
manuals. 

Likewise, the railways should develop costs specifically for train switching. In 
the meantime, we favour the Canadian National approach of assigning road locomotive 
costs to train switching, since road rather than yard locomotives are used in this 
function. 

3. Multiple Car Switching 

Neither of the Class I railways recognizes any distinctions in the average number 
of cars per switching cut for various types of traffic through a given yard, except when 
20 or more cars are moved together on a regular basis and a specific amount of 
dedicated switching time can be identified. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Governments of the Provinces pointed out that the subject was given 
considerable study in the course of the MacPherson Commission hearings, where it was 
determined that there are economies in multiple car lot switching, and where 
persuasive evidence was presented to indicate that grain traffic consistently moves in 
larger car cuts than the average of all freight traffic. They recommended to the 
Committee: 

"The railways should be required to make field and analytical studies of the 
economies of multiple car cuts. Pending completion of such studies, the revised 
Costing Order should reflect the scale tested and adopted by the staff of the 
MacPherson Commission." 

Position of Canadian National 

Counsel for Canadian National contended that the savings generated by multiple 
car switching are not significant enough to justify specific adjustments by type of 
traffic. To support this argument, he cited the following factors: 

(1) Switching studies already reflect average cut sizes for the different elements 
of switching within a yard. 

(2) Important switching elements, such as transfers, scaling, interchange and 
bad order switching are unaffected by cut size. 

(3) There is a "centralizing tendency" in switching, in which successive 
switchings tend to even out variations in cut sizes toward a reasonably 
common average. 

(4) The introduction of hump yards, where cut size is a negligible factor, has 
reduced the significance of this element. 

59 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



(5) The uncertainty of car lot sizes means that yards must be prepared to 
handle unpredictable variations in car cuts. 

Findings of the Committee 

With the possible exception of the reference to the introduction of hump yards, 
the Canadian National arguments fail to refute the very clear-cut findings of the 
MacPherson Commission study that "it is now generally recognized that multiple car 
shipments do result in savings in switching time." This conclusion was supported by 
Canadian Pacific's own study, embodied in a table on the same page of the Royal 
Commission report as the above quotation. Canadian Pacific had argued then, as 
Canadian National argues now, that multiple car cuts have Uttle impact on switching 
time. Yet Canadian Pacific's own study revealed that the average classification time 
per car declines significantly as cut size is increased. For example, the switching time 
required per car in a six-car cut is about two-thirds that of a three-car cut, half that of 
a two-car cut and almost a quarter that of a single car. 

The Committee believes that the railways have ignored this element in switching 
costs for too long. Accordingly, the railways will be directed to institute the following 
studies immediately: 

(1) A study to determine the average cut size used in the switching of grain cars 
at major grain-handling yards. 

(2) A study to determine whether other broad classes of traffic experience 
consistent variations from the average cut size of all freight traffic moving 
through major yards and terminals. 

(3) A study to determine the cost variations resulting from differences in car lot 
sizes in each of the switching elements. 

The primary importance of this element relates to grain traffic, and specifically 
in respect of applications to abandon branch lines which handle grain traffic almost 
entirely. Accordingly, the Committee has determined that in costing of grain 
movements for appHcations under section 314B of the Act, each railway should, 
whenever data are available, reflect the influence of the average switching cut size of 
grain traffic at each switching operation. Where the appropriate studies of switching 
car-lots have not yet been made, the railway should indicate when and in what manner 
it plans to conduct such studies. If the line in question is found to be uneconomic but 
is continued in operation in the public interest, the railway should report the results of 
its studies immediately as they are completed so that they can be reflected in the 
calculation of subsidy under section 3\4E. 

Pending completion of the studies of the cost influence of multiple car 
switching, the railways will be directed to use the cost relationships among cut sizes 
developed by Canadian Pacific for the MacPherson Royal Commission on Transporta- 
tion which are set forth on page 279 of Volume III of its Report.

ABANDONMENT OF BRANCH LINES 

During the hearing a variety of positions were taken by the parties relative to the 
items and factors which should be accepted by the Committee in the determination of 
actual loss and the uneconomic condition of branch lines under sections 314B, 314E and 
314G of the Railway Act. Since the technical aspects of variable cost, depreciation, cost 
of capital, uniformity and other matters are being dealt with separately elsewhere in these 
reasons, consideration in respect of branch line abandonments will be confined to those 
defined in the Act or raised by the parties during the hearing. 

The Railway Act requires the Committee to make three primary cost-related 
determinations in connection with branch lines for which application has been made by 
the railways for abandonment. These three are as follows: 

1. "Actual Loss" relative to an application by the railways to abandon a branch 
line: Section 314B. 

2. The determination by the Committee whether a branch line is uneconomic: 
Section 314C. 

3. The calculation of actual loss for purposes of subsidy determination: Section 
314E. 

Section 31 40 also requires that the Committee determine the actual loss of branch 
lines which the Govemor-in-Council has decided shall not be abandoned. 

Actual loss is defined in section 314A of the Railway Act as follows: 

"314A. In this section and sections 314B and 314G, 

(a) "actual loss", in relation to any branch line means the excess of 

(i) the costs incurred by the company in any financial year thereof in 
the operation of the line and in the movement of traffic 
originating or terminating on the line, 

over 

(ii) the revenues of the company for that year from the operation of 
the line and from the movement of traffic originating or 
terminating on the line;" 

In speaking of costs in the computation of actual loss, the Board's Cost Order 
states: 

"Costs in relation to a branch line means those costs, as set out in Section 3 of the 
regulations, which would have been avoided by a company if, in any financial year, 
it did not maintain and operate the branch line, and did not carry the traffic 
originating, terminating or passing over the line, or would have been incurred by a 
company if, in any fmancial year, it maintained and operated the branch line, and 
carried the traffic originating, terminating or passing over the hne irrespective of 
when or in what manner or by whom such costs were incurred."

Of the many issues raised in this Inquiry in connection with the actual loss formula, 
by far the most significant is the controversy as to whether costs to be taken into account 
shall be those which would be avoided if the line were abandoned, or whether the costs 
should be those which would be ascribed to the line by normal accounting procedures in 
the ordinary course of business. For purposes of the following discussion, we shall refer 
to these conflicting approaches as the "avoidable cost approach" whose primary 
advocates were the Governments of the Provinces, and the "accounting approach" whose 
primary advocate was the Canadian Pacific Railway. 

Avoidable Cost Approach 

A number of the parties took positions in favour of the avoidable cost approach, 
but in varying degrees of application. The most Hmited avoidable cost position was 
advocated by EBS. BBS considered avoidable cost only in relation to investment, the 
costs of which show up in depreciation charges and in cost of capital allocations. In its 
report on Branch Line Abandonments it set out the issues as follows: 

"There are various approaches to the treatment of the cost of capital in branch line 
abandonments. One can treat it as the Railways have in a compensatory rate 
analysis, that is, to calculate a return on net book investment. This approach views 
a branch line, even an unprofitable one, as an integral part of the railway system 
which is responsible for its full share of the costs, including the capital costs 
associated with it. 

A second approach treats branch line investment as "sunk", that is, investment 
which is irretrievably committed and which cannot be recouped except through the 
earning power of its assigned function or, alternatively, through salvage. Since the 
assigned function of investment sunk in an unprofitable branch line has no earning 
power, its value is reduced to the sole alternative, salvage. This value represents the 
best return a railway can experience from the investment. We find that the latter 
viewpoint more realistically reflects the actual capital situation confronting the 
railway . . ." 

EBS went on to recommend that cost of capital be permitted only on salvage value 
of property which would be abandoned, and that depreciation be excluded altogether 
except with regard to decline in salvage value. EBS would substitute a forecast of capital 
expenditures each year, and this forecast would take the place of depreciation charges. 

Provincial Exhibit P-1 expressed almost total agreement with the EBS position, but 
stated that it did not go far enough. The Governments of the Provinces advocated that no 
on-line costs should be attributed for traffic expense, general expense, communications 
expense and insurance not directly assignable to the line in question or the traffic being 
costed. Their argument was that such costs are not truly avoidable as a result of 
abandonment, hence may not be considered in the calculation of actual loss. 

The most severe application of the avoidable cost doctrine was advocated by 
Counsel for the Manitoba Branch Lines Association. He expressed concern over the 

59 R.T.C. 



- 390- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



failure of the actual loss formula to reflect the retention of most traffic on other lines, 
particularly in the grain-gathering areas. In Exhibit BL-1, he summarized his recom- 
mendation: 

"... the cost of moving grain is not avoidable on abandonment of a line, as it is still 
moved by rail to the port or terminal. On abandonment applications, off-line costs 
should not be charged to the Branch Line, as they will be moved in any event. It is 
absolutely essential that costs actually incurred on the Branch Line be separated 
from costs on the main line to arrive at the real and actual cost of the Branch line 
and to arrive at the difference in cost in moving the grain over the Branch Line, or 
other railway or means of transport." 

Accounting Approach 

In opposition to avoidable cost, Canadian Pacific advocated an approach which 
would reflect the actual recorded costs for each historical accounting year. Canadian 
Pacific laid heavy stress on what it felt to be the necessity to reflect depreciation as 
defined in the Uniform Classification of Accounts. Exhibit CP-1 quoted the definition of 
depreciation in the Uniform Classification of Accounts, and stated that this, the officially 
approved definition of depreciation, was the only one acceptable under the terms of 
section 387A which requires the Committee to include allowances for depreciation and 
cost of capital. Counsel for Canadian Pacific summarized this position as follows: 

. . when Section 387A (1) refers to "depreciation" it refers (and I have picked 
these words up in the uniform classification) to a system whereby the original cost 
to the railway of tangible capital assets, less salvage, is distributed over the 
estimated useful life of the assets, which may be a group of assets, and is charged 
monthly to expenses. I submit that this is the meaning of the word "depreciation" 
under the Railway Act and under the uniform classification of accounts. And it is 
the meaning intended by Parliament in Section 387A (1)." 

The Canadian Pacific view of cost of capital is much the same: that it represents a 
retum on the investment as calculated by subtracting the appropriate book depreciation 
reserve accounts from the corresponding property accounts, and then applying a suitable 
percentage as rate of return. 

With respect to the other costs, Counsel for Canadian Pacific insisted that the Act 
makes no provision for avoidable costs: 

"Now, the necessity for a discussion of the meaning of Section 314A, subsection 
(a), arises out of the insistence of the Provinces and certain other parties that the 
words 'costs incurred by the company in any financial year in the operation of the 
line', and so on, really do not mean what they say; but, rather, that they mean 'the 
costs which would be avoided in a future year if the line should be aban- 
doned . . ."'

''I submit, Mr. Chairman, with respect, that nowhere in the Railway Act do we find 
any provision tending to show that the term 'costs incurred' on a branch Une really 
means 'costs which would be avoided if the line were no longer in use.' " 

Although Counsel for Canadian Pacific did not specifically say so, his position 
implies that the only acceptable costs would be those which would be developed in a 
conventional variable cost analysis that would be applied to a "going concern" operation 
as, for example, in a rate case, and the branch line would be expected to bear the full 
portion of all overheads regarded as variable with traffic in general. 

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee finds that both of these opposing arguments, if carried to extremes, 
could have undesirable consequences. The principles of general accounting and those of 
costing are not necessarily the same. Accounting is for the purpose of recording all 
revenues, expenses and investment on a consistent basis, while costing seeks to measure 
the resources used in performing specific services. 

The Canadian Pacific advocacy of adherence to the Uniform Classification of 
Accounts would extend its use beyond the intended purpose of the prescribed accounting 
system. The Act does not say that depreciation shall be allowed in accordance with the 
Uniform Classification of Accounts. What it does say is that depreciation shall be allowed 
"as to the Commission seems reasonable in the circumstances", and the Committee does 
not regard itself as bound by the Uniform Classification of Accounts in defining 
depreciation for costing purposes. Furthermore, since cost of capital is never mentioned 
in the Uniform Classification of Accounts, its definition must be developed elsewhere. 

If the Committee were compelled to accept the Uniform Classification of Accounts 
for its basic definition of costs, significant changes in costing methods could be effected 
through the simple amendment procedure of the Classification of Accounts. Such 
procedure is clearly contrary to the intent of the Act expressed in section 387B. 

The Committee believes that economics should provide the guiding principles 
throughout the cost regulations in the various appHcations in which costs are employed. 
For this reason, it cannot accept the restrictive approach which Canadian Pacific has 
advocated. 

The Committee has already said that section 387 A requires some allowance for 
depreciation and cost of capital. For this reason, it cannot accept the BBS recom- 
mendation that depreciation be disallowed in the calculation of actual loss, and that a 
capital forecast be substituted. 

Turning to the avoidable cost concept, the Committee also has reservations about 
some of its more extreme applications. Section 314A requires that the cost side of the 
actual loss calculation include "the movement of traffic originating or terminating on the 
line" and that the revenue side include all revenue from the movement of traffic 
originating and terminating on the line. Counsel for the Manitoba Branch Lines

Association made the point that most of the grain traffic on branch lines proposed for 
abandonment in the Prairie Provinces will merely be diverted to other lines. The language 
of the Act nevertheless governs the calculation of actual loss, and it requires inclusion of 
all "off-Hne" costs, that is, all costs incurred in moving traffic originating and terminating 
on the branch line when that traffic is on main lines to which the branch line at issue 
connects. 

The Governments of the Provinces urge that overhead costs such as communica- 
tions, general expense, insurance and traffic expense which are not found to be directly 
traceable to the branch line should be disallowed. This recommendation, although less 
extreme than that of the Manitoba Branch Lines Association, is based on the same 
argument, that if the traffic is retained on other lines of the same railway, these costs will 
be incurred in any case. Again, we are required by the language of section 314A to 
postpone consideration of the effect of retained traffic to the "uneconomic" evaluation 
under section 314C. 

The only issue relative to these overhead-type costs in the actual loss calculation is 
whether they are appropriately variable with traffic or with the branch line in question. 
In an earlier section on "Other Cost Factors" we have stated that traffic costs will be 
disallowed except where the railways can demonstrate that they are applicable to the 
branch line traffic. Such disallowance is based on the failure of the railways to 
demonstrate that the functions of the Traffic Department are involved in grain traffic. 
There has been significant evidence to indicate that general expenses, insurance costs and 
communication expenses are at least partially avoidable in the case of abandonment. 

We therefore may allow such indirect costs to the extent that the railways can 
demonstrate that specific savings in these expenses would result from the abandonment 
of the line for which an application is made under section 314B or, in the case of subsidy 
calculations, under sections SHE or 314G, from the abandonment of one or more branch 
lines for which subsidies are claimed. 

The Committee has concluded, in considering the phrase "costs incurred", that the 
Act envisages two successive decisions; first, whether as a going concern the branch line 
incurs losses which impose a burden on other lines. Having made the determination that 
such losses exist, but that the line should be retained in the pubHc interest, the 
Committee must subsequently decide what financial burden the continued operation of 
the branch line would impose on the railway. 

The first determination is made under section 314B of the Act. Prior to that point 
in time, there can be no presumption that the branch line is unprofitable, and its assets 
are considered to be integral operating parts of the railway system. This is one of the 
reasons for the Committee's allowance of normal depreciation charges as part of the 
actual loss calculation relative to branch line applications under section 314B. 

The justification for this treatment can be demonstrated by examining the 
consequences of excluding depreciation. One of the purposes of depreciation accruals is 

59 R.T.C. 



- 393 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



to provide capital to replace assets which have worn out. Exclusion of depreciation in 
abandonment applications might require the railways to continue operating lines which 
generate revenue sufficient to cover current operating expenses but not sufficient revenue 
to replace capital investment. While in the short run such lines might cause no cash loss to 
the railway, in the long run, as property wears out and must be replaced, they will 
generate a direct cash shortfall. Since depreciation is a method of charging these capital 
costs on an annual basis, it properly should be included with operating expenses in 
determining whether a line is incurring losses as a going concern. 

These normal depreciation charges, however, are based on a group plan which 
reflects the average loss of asset value within each property classification throughout the 
entire railway. Since many assets will wear out faster under heavy traffic than under light 
traffic, the dollar charges for depreciation are usually excessive when applied only to the 
assets of light density Unes. 

The group depreciation plan similarly obscures the net investment appropriately 
assignable to the road property on branch lines. Since both property accounts and 
depreciation reserve accumulations cover all property of a given class throughout the 
railway, the net investment totals derived from them reflect the average age of investment 
on the same system-wide basis. Given the relatively great age and the low rate of capital 
replacement of much of the investment, the average branch line property of a given class 
is likely to be more depreciated than that of the system as a whole. To allow a cost of 
capital on the basis of average system age of assets would overstate the investment return 
which appropriately should be assigned to branch lines for the purpose of calculating 
actual loss under section 314B. 

A solution to these difficulties would be to study the specific aging characteristics 
of each property item on each branch line proposed for abandonment, and to develop an 
appropriate depreciation rate and level of net investment. 

Unfortunately, data are not generally available to permit such specific and detailed 
analyses. The Committee has, therefore, used the discretionary power granted by section 
387A of the Act to include allowances for depreciation and cost of capital "as to the 
Commission seems reasonable in the circumstances". The Committee finds that in the 
circumstances of branch Hne abandonment applications it is not reasonable to assign book 
depreciation, and cost of capital on net book investment, both based on the group plan, 
to branch line property. Since group depreciation charges usually overstate the actual 
asset value loss of such property, and since such actual value loss cannot practicably be 
determined in this Inquiry, the Committee, in estabHshing the total reasonable allowance 
permissible under sections 387A and 387B, must adjust the cost of capital allowance for 
the element of overstatement in the depreciation charges to branch line property resulting 
from the group plan. Consequently, the Committee will allow cost of capital on branch 
line road property for purposes of abandonment appHcations under section 314B only to 
the extent of the salvage value of that property.

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



If, however, the applicant railway can establish depreciation charges and net 
investment calculations which reflect the specific aging characteristics of the road 
property of the branch line in question, the Committee will consider substituting such 
specific cost factors in lieu of the general prescription for depreciation and cost of capital 
outlined above. 

Once it is determined under section 314B that the branch line incurs an actual loss, 
it can no longer be considered a going concern. The original investment in such a line is 
irretrievably committed to an operation which cannot support itself. The Committee 
must consider two alternatives: on the one hand, it may require the line to be continued 
in operation even though its return may be inadequate to cover depreciation and capital 
costs, and on the other hand it may permit the line to be abandoned immediately. This 
determination will be made in the course of the "uneconomic" evaluation under section 
314C. 

The purpose of subsidy under sections 314E and 314G is to compensate the railway 
for the amount of the actual loss which in the opinion of the Committee is attributable to 
the continuance in operation of the line. Since it is only the return on salvage value of the 
assets committed to the branch line which is being denied the railway by reason of the 
requirement to retain the line, only salvage value should be used as the basis for cost of 
capital for branch line property proposed for abandonment. Similarly, conventional 
depreciation is inappropriate, since the property has already lost its income earning power 
and can be valued for depreciation only as salvage. Accordingly, for purposes of subsidy 
under sections 314E and 314G, the Committee wiU allow depreciation on retained branch 
line property only to the extent that salvage value decHnes. 

There remains the problem of capital replacement alluded to earHer. Since any new 
assets needed to continue the line in operation would be added only because of the public 
requirement that the line be retained, such replacement costs should be included in claims 
under sections 314E and 314G. Accordingly, normal depreciation and cost of capital will 
be allowed on any investment made in an uneconomic line subsequent to the 
Committee's order that it be retained in the public interest. 

Since these depreciation charges are based on the group plan, they will reflect the 
average economic life expectancy of comparable assets throughout the railway system. 
According to section 314C (5), the Committee must, within five years, review the 
application of each retained uneconomic branch line, at which time it may determine that 
the line should be abandoned. The new assets which were added to keep the line in 
operation in accordance with the Committee's original direction would be only partially 
depreciated. Retirement of such assets without compensation for the remaining net 
undepreciated investment would throw a hardship on the railways which is clearly 
inconsistent with the intent of the National Transportation Act to compensate the modes 
of transportation for services rendered in the public interest. For this reason, the 
Committee has determined that in calculating claims for the last year of operation prior 
to abandonment of a line which had previously been retained by order of the Committee, 

59 R.T.C. 



- 395 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



the railways may include as a cost the full net undepreciated investment (difference 
between gross investment, less salvage, and accumulated depreciation) in any assets added 
subsequent to the Committee's earlier order that the line be retained. The accumulated 
depreciation used in this calculation will be that specifically relating to the assets in 
question and that which has been accepted for subsidy purposes. It should not be an 
expression of the average system-wide relationship between accumulated depreciation and 
gross investment for the asset group. 

Economic Analysis 

Section 314C (1) of the Railway Act requires the Committee to make the following 
determination : 

"If the Commission finds that in its opinion the company . . . has incurred an actual 
loss . . . , the Commission shall . . . determine whether the hne is uneconomic and is 
likely to continue to be uneconomic and whether the Hne should be aban- 
doned. . . ." 

This language indicates that the designation of a Une as "uneconomic" is a 
determination separate from and subsequent to the identification of an actual loss 
attributable to the line in question. 

The Act is also clear that the designation of "uneconomic" does not necessarily 
mean that the line should be abandoned. Section 314C (3) commences with the words: 

"In determining whether an uneconomic branch line or any segment thereof should 
be abandoned . . ." 

This phraseology indicates that the designation "uneconomic" is a prerequisite for 
abandonment, but not the determinant thereof. It is also a prerequisite for subsidy, as 
revealed by the wording of section 314E (2): 

"When an uneconomic line of railway, or any segment thereof, is being operated 
within a claim period, the company operating it may file a claim with the 
Commission for the amount of any actual loss . . . ." 

Because of these provisions in the Act, the "uneconomic" designation takes on a 
high degree of importance. The Act, however, gives little indication as to how 
"uneconomic" is intended to differ from "incurs an actual loss", nor does it contain any 
prescription as to specific factors and principles which should be taken into account in 
this designation. 

Canadian Pacific contended that there is very Httle difference between the finding 
of "actual loss" and that of "uneconomic". To support its argument it referred to the 
French text of the Act, which uses the term "un embranchement non rentable", for 
"uneconomic branch Une". The word "rentable", contends Canadian Pacific, means 
"profitable", so that "uneconomic" or "non rentable" means unprofitable — a far more 
limiting definition than that conventionally associated with the expression "uneconomic".

In Exhibit CP-1, Canadian Pacific summarized the implications which it believes 
this definition has for the evaluation by the Committee under section 314C: 

"The requirement is perfectly clear. The Commission is entitled to examine all the 
prescribed accounting years, in order to determine whether the line is really 
unprofitable, or whether the "actual loss" which may have occurred in the recent 
past is due to special factors which have disappeared or are likely to disappear in 
the future. Similarly, the Commission is entitled to take cognizance of any likely 
developments in the future which might render an unprofitable line profitable. In 
this determination the Commission is entitled to consider any outside factors which 
may have affected, or might in the future affect, the profitability of the operations 
of the branch line. 

On the other hand, a study of Section 314B and 314G shows that the decision by 
the Commission as to whether the Une is uneconomic or not, is a decision which 
must be made with reference only to the branch line itself. The decision does not 
involve any wide-ranging consideration of the effects of the branch line operations 
on other parts of the company's railway, or of the effects of the possible diversions 
of traffic which might take place if the line were to be abandoned, or of the effects 
of such operations on other modes of transport or on nearby regions. All such 
questions must be considered with reference to the question of whether the 
Commission will permit "abandonment". (Section 314C (3) ). They are not 
relevant to the decision as to whether the branch line is uneconomic." 

The Provinces pointed to subsection (2) of section 314C to support their view that 
"uneconomic" is intended to have a broader interpretation than that advanced by 
Canadian Pacific. That subsection empowers the Committee, among other things, to 
consider together several branch line applications in the same or adjoining areas and to 
require detailed traffic data for all branch lines in the area surrounding the branch line or 
lines proposed for abandonment. While Counsel for the Government of Saskatchewan did 
not argue with the use of the term "unprofitable" as a suitable synonym for 
"uneconomic", he strongly urged that the unprofitability must be considered in relation 
to the railway as a whole, rather than to the individual branch line alone: 

"Our concept of this task, I repeat again, is that the Committee is empowered and 
directed not simply to look casually at various branch line operations . . . but 
rather, to consider these applications in their total relationship to the provision of 
railway services in the important business of transporting grain from Western 
Canada to world markets." 

This interpretation was also advocated by the Committee's consultant, who said 
that the term "uneconomic", while limited to considerations of railway operations alone, 
was intended to take into account the possibility that re-organization of traffic, service, 
routing and other branch line abandonments could ultimately render profitable a branch 
line which has consistently incurred actual losses in past years.

Findings of the Committee 

The Committee concurs with the consensus of the parties that "uneconomic" refers 
to the performance of railway operations only. To include such considerations as the cost 
of altemative modes of transportation as determinants of "uneconomic" would raise the 
possibility that highly unprofitable lines could be designated "economic" and therefore 
ineligible for subsidy only because alternative transportation is either unavailable or more 
costly. Such a result would be contrary to the National Transportation PoHcy as laid 
down in section 1 (c) of the National Transportation Act that "each mode of transport, 
so far as practicable, receives compensation for the resources, facilities, and services that 
it is required to provide as a pubHc duty;". 

On the other hand, the Railway Act clearly contemplates that the finding of 
"uneconomic" is a subsequent and more comprehensive determination than the 
estabhshment of an actual loss. While we agree that in the context of the Act the term 
"unprofitable" is probably as close a synonym to "uneconomic" as can be found, we are 
impressed by the fact that the Act nevertheless uses the word "uneconomic" rather than 
"unprofitable". To the extent that there are any differences in shades of meaning 
between these two words, the Act intends that such differences should be reflected in the 
Committee's considerations. The principal difference in meaning lies in the emphasis 
which the word "uneconomic" lays on the intrinsic or fundamental nature of 
unprofitability, as opposed to temporary unprofitability or unprofitability which could 
be eliminated through operating changes within the present capability of the railway 
system. 

The Committee, therefore, cannot accept the rather rigid definitional limitation 
advocated by Canadian Pacific that only the Une proposed for abandonment can be 
considered in making the "uneconomic" designation. We agree with Counsel for the 
Government of Saskatchewan that section 314C appears to include rationalization of the 
branch line structure, as set forth in section 314C (2), as a specific ingredient of the 
"uneconomic" determination. 

Accordingly, the Committee has determined that the expression "uneconomic", as 
used in reference to branch lines in section 314C, means the Hne must not only 
be unprofitable, but it must be incapable of being rendered profitable within the scope 
of all feasible alterations in the operating practices of the railway, the scheduling and 
routing of traffic, or the restructuring of the branch lines themselves. 

The Decision to Abandon 

Having determined that a line which incurs an "actual loss" is uneconomic in 
accordance with section 314C (1) of the Railway Act, the Committee must then decide 
whether the line should be abandoned. In section 314C (3) the Act specifies a number of 
matters which the Committee must include in its consideration of the proposed 
abandonment. In offering this enumeration, however, the Act is emphatic that it does not

intend to limit the generality of its requirement that the "Commission shall consider all 
matters that in its opinion are relevant to the public interest. . . ." 

Largely because of the breadth of these provisions, there was little controversy 
among the parties as to the matters which could or should be considered in this phase of 
abandonment proceedings. There was some discussion regarding the disclosure of the 
detail behind the actual loss calculations. This issue is discussed elsewhere in these 
reasons. 

The first of the matters enumerated in section 314C (3) which the Committee must 
include in its consideration of a proposed abandonment is the actual loss incurred in the 
operation of the branch line. The foregoing discussion has set out two actual loss 
calculations: the first, which approaches the line as a going concern, is to be used for 
appHcations to abandon under section 314B, and the second, which views the line as a 
"sunk investment", is to apply to subsidy calculations under section 314E. The 
Committee, in considering the abandonment of a branch line under section 314C (3), 
will take into account both of these actual loss calculations, as well as the significance of 
differences, if any, between them. Accordingly, after the Committee finds an actual loss 
under section 314C (1), the railway will be required to submit another actual loss 
calculation based on the prescription set forth above for the computation of subsidy. 
Both of these calculations will be considered as evidence in making the determination as 
to whether the line should be abandoned. 

It is at this point that the Committee will want to conduct a detailed examination 
of the effects which abandonment would have on the existing traffic of the line under 
study. 

The Committee's consultant pointed out that in Western Canada most of the grain 
traffic is essentially captive to the railway system. As a result, branch line abandonment 
will merely divert existing grain traffic to the railway lines which continue to operate. 
The point was emphasized in the submissions of the Governments of the Provinces, the 
Canadian Co-operative Wheat Producers, and the Manitoba Branch Lines Association. 
This issue can have a significant influence on the determination to abandon an 
uneconomic Une if the effect of abandonment is to increase losses on the lines to which 
the traffic is diverted. 

In order to provide the basis for an evaluation of traffic diversion, the railways 
should submit with each application a detailed statement of the probable disposition of 
the existing traffic on the line proposed for abandonment, that is to say, the amount of 
traffic which will be lost altogether and the new routing of any traffic which will be 
retained. 

Following its determination under section 314B that actual losses exist, the 
Committee may direct the applicant to furnish special "before and after" cost and 
revenue comparisons on the lines to which the traffic is diverted. These will be used in the 
course of the Committee's considerations under section 314C.

Other Issues 

Several other issues arose with regard to the costing procedures used for branch Hne 
and other abandonments. One dealt with the cost groupings to be shown in abandonment 
applications. The Board's Cost Order had prescribed four cost categories into which all 
costs submitted by the railways should be divided. None of the parties objected to the 
basic concept of the four categories, although the railways, and particularly Canadian 
National, indicated their view that the categories are unnecessary and would require 
added time and effort in the preparation of appHcations. The Committee has decided that 
the four categories should remain in the Cost Order. 

Another issue involved the number of consecutive years for which costs will be 
shown in branch line abandonment appHcations. Counsel for the Manitoba Branch Lines 
Association and the Governments of the Provinces urged that costs be shown for a 
minimum of five years in order to eUminate the effect of short-term changes in traffic 
patterns or operating practices. The railways replied that cost calculation for so many 
years would be burdensome and that two, or at the most three, years should be adequate 
to show the patterns of actual loss on the line in question. 

The Committee finds merit in both arguments. As a compromise, we have decided 
that the railways should submit actual loss calculations for the three most recent years for 
which data are available. In addition, we will require that traffic data be supplied for the 
last five years. If the patterns of traffic over these five years reveal significant variations, it 
may then be necessary to obtain actual loss computations for a greater span of time than 
the three years initially shown in the abandonment appHcation. 

Another issue relates to abandonments under section 168 of the Railway Act. 

Subsection (2) of section 314H of the Railway Act provides: 

"(2) After the coming into force of sections 314A to 314G no approval for the 
abandormient of the operations of any line of railway shall be given under section 
168 except in accordance with such regulations as the Governor in Council may 
make in that regard." 

On March 23, 1967, the Govemor-in-Council enacted Order-in-Council P.C. 
1967-569, promulgating regulations under secfion 314H (2) of the Act. On October 1, 
1968, new regulations were promulgated by Order-in-Council P.C. 1968-1874, which are 
now in force and which provide: 

"REGULATIONS RESPECTING APPLICATIONS FOR 
ABANDONMENT OF LINES OF RAILWAY UNDER 
SECTION 168 OF THE RAILWAY ACT 

1. These Regulations may be cited as the Railway Abandonment Regulations. 

2. (1) In these Regulations, 

(a) "Act" means the Railway Act; and 

59 R.T.C. 



-400- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



(b) "application" means an application for the abandonment of a line of railway 
made under section 168 of the Act before or after the coming into force of 
these Regulations. 

(2) Subsection (1) of sections 3 and 4 of these Regulations do not apply in respect of 
an application pending before the Commission on the day that these Regulations come 
into force. 

3. (1) An application for the approval of the abandonment of a line of railway pursuant 
to section 168 of the Act may be made to the Commission in such manner as the 
Commission may prescribe. 

(2) Subject to subsection (3), approval for the abandonment of the operations of a 
line of railway may be given by the Commission under section 168 of the Act in respect 
of any line of railway that is not listed in the Schedule to the Abandonment of Branch 
Lines Prohibition Order. 

(3) The Commission shall not approve, under section 168 of the Act, the 
abandonment of the operations of any branch line within the meaning of section 314A of 
the Act except a branch line that is not Hsted in the Schedule to the Abandonment of 
Branch Lines Prohibition Order and in respect of which an apphcation is pending before 
the Commission on the day that these Regulations come into force. 

4. (1) An application shall contain a statement of the reasons in favour of abandonment 
of the particular line of railway. 

(2) An application shall be supported by such information as the Commission 
requires. 

5. Where two or more appHcations are made in respect of the same area or adjoining 
areas as determined by the Commission, the Commission may consider these appHcations 
together as a group. 

6. Where an application has been received by the Commission, the Commission shall hold 
such hearings with respect to the apphcation as, in its opinion, are necessary to enable all 
interested persons to present their views on the apphcation. 

7. (1) Where an apphcation is made in respect of a branch line within the meaning of 
section 314A of the Act, the Commission shall consider the matters referred to in 
subsection (3) of section 314C of the Act. 

(2) Where an application is made in respect of any line not referred to in subsection 
(1), the Commission shall, in so far as the Commission may deem appropriate, consider 
the matters referred to in subsection (3) of section 314C of the Act. 

8. (1) Notwithstanding subsection (3) of section 3 of these Regulations, approval for the 
abandonment of the operations of any branch line within the meaning of section 314A of 
the Act may be given by the Commission under section 168 of the Act if the 
abandonment of such branch line results from flooding for a hydro-electric power 

59 R.T.C.

AUGUST 1969 



development or if the branch line is made or is to be made otherwise unusable by a lawful 
act of a duly constituted authority. 

(2) Section 7 does not apply in respect of an application for abandonment made 
under subsection (1) of this section." 

The regulations differentiate applications to abandon branch lines under section 
168 from applications to abandon other lines. In the one, the Committee must consider 
the matters referred to in subsection (3) of section 314C of the Act and in the other, it 
must consider only such of the said matters as it deems appropriate. 

Since the matters referred to in section 314C (3) include ". . . the actual losses that 
are incurred in the operation of the branch line", the Cost Order should apply to 
applications to abandon under section 168, whether the line in question is a branch line 
or not. AppHcations for abandonment under section 168 of the Railway Act should 
therefore be prepared and submitted to the Committee, and pubHc notice be given, in the 
same manner as applications under section 314B unless the Committee in any other 
particular case otherwise directs. 

In the opinion of the Committee, the regulations contained in Order-in-Council P.C. 
1968-1874 do not render section 314E of the Act applicable to the abandonment of a 
line other than a branch line, because no regulation under section 314H (2) could have 
the effect of enlarging the meaning of "uneconomic line of railway" as defined in section 
314E(l)(c). 

Accordingly, when deciding an application to abandon a line of railway other than 
a branch line, the Committee will consider the actual loss as required by section 314C 
only in so far as it may be deemed appropriate. 

DISCONTINUANCE OF PASSENGER-TRAIN SERVICES 

Sections 3141 and 314J of the Railway Act govern applications by the railways to 
discontinue passenger-train services. 

Section 3141 (1) defines "actual loss" in relation to a passenger-train service as: 

"(i) the excess, if any, of the costs incurred by the company in carrying passengers 
by the passenger-train service 

over 

(ii) the revenues of the company attributable to the carrying of passengers by the 
passenger-train service." 

Many of the issues in passenger-train costing are analogous to those in costing for 
branch line abandonment, primarily owing to the similarities of the respective provisions 
in the Act. 

The Railway Act requires the Committee to make three primary cost-related 
determinations in connection with passenger-train services for which application has been 

59 R.T.C. 



-402- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



made by the railways for discontinuance. These three are as follows: 

1. "Actual Loss" relative to an application by the railways to discontinue a 
passenger-train service: Section 3141 (4). 

2. The determination by the Committee whether a passenger-train service is 
uneconomic: Section 3141 (5). 

3. The certification of "actual loss" for purposes of subsidy determination: Section 
314J. 

One difference between branch line abandonment and passenger-train service 
discontinuance lies in the absence of off-line costs in the case of passenger-train service. 
Since the actual loss calculation refers only to the costs incurred in and revenues 
attributable to "carrying passengers by the passenger-train service", there is no allowance 
for costs and revenues of those same passengers on connecting passenger trains. In branch 
line calculations, the traffic originating or terminating on the Hne bears the full costs and 
receives the full revenues of the through movement from off-line origin or to off-line 
destination. 

1. Actual Loss Calculation 

Because of the similarities between the provisions of the Railway Act dealing with 
branch line abandonments and passenger-train service discontinuances, much of the 
discussion and many of the findings of the Committee relative to branch Hnes can be 
incorporated by reference into this section of the reasons. As in the branch line argument, 
Canadian Pacific advocated a firm adherence to conventional accounting in computing 
the actual loss of passenger-train services. The Governments of the Provinces countered 
with an argument for a strictly "avoidable cost" approach with no depreciation of 
property which would be retired and cost of capital Hmited to salvage value only. 

The Committee's findings also correspond to those set forth in the section of these 
reasons relating to branch line abandonments. We find that the actual loss calcuation to 
be used for applications to discontinue under section 3141 should approach the service as 
an integral part of a going concern to which normal depreciation should be charged. When 
the net book value of the road property is based on the group plan of accruing 
depreciation, the Committee will allow cost of capital only on the salvage value of the 
road property. If, however, the railway can develop depreciation charges and investment 
calculations acceptable to the Committee as reflecting the specific aging characteristics of 
the road property, the Committee will allow cost of capital on the resultant net value. On 
all other property which the Committee is satisfied is required in the operation of the 
service, cost of capital will be allowed on net book value. 

An uneconomic passenger-train service is one which is incapable of being rendered 
profitable to the railway under any feasible alterations in railway operating practices, 
equipment assignment, scheduling, pricing, or other aspects of passenger service under 
railway control. 

59 R.T.C. 



-403 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



If a service is found to be uneconomic but needed in the public interest, it becomes 
eligible for subsidy under section 314J. The subsidy is designed to compensate the 
railway for an amount not exceeding 80% of the actual loss which it incurs by being 
required to continue a service. Depreciation will, therefore, be allowed in an amount that 
will reflect the annual decline in the net value that could be realized from the salvage of 
depreciable road property which the Committee is satisfied could or would be retired if 
the service were discontinued but which is required for continued operation; cost of 
capital will also be allowed on the salvage value of such property. Depreciation will be 
allowed on the book value and cost of capital on the net book value of such other 
property and such new assets as the Committee is satisfied are necessary for the 
continued operation of the service. 

As mentioned above, certain new assets may have to be added to continue the 
operation of a passenger service as directed under section 314J. If the Committee 
subsequently decides that the passenger service should be discontinued, the new assets 
added at the time of the original direction may not have been fully depreciated. For this 
reason, in calculating claims for the last year of operation prior to discontinuance of a 
passenger service, the railways will be allowed to include as a cost the undepreciated cost 
of such new assets. The undepreciated cost will be calculated by deducting from the 
actual cost of the new assets their salvage value at the time of discontinuance and the 
accumulated depreciation allowed for subsidy purposes in previous years. 

2. Common Passenger Plant 

A key issue related to passenger-train discontinuance is the assignment of costs 
which are fixed in relation to individual passenger-train services but variable with a group 
of services or with the railway's passenger service in general. There are two broad 
categories of such costs. In the first category are the fixed costs of passenger faciHties or 
operations which are used by a number of individual services but which could not be 
saved unless all of the services in the group creating the costs were discontinued. In this 
category are the fixed costs of stations, passenger yards, cleaning installations and 
regional passenger facilities. In the other category of costs are those common to all 
passenger services on the railway. This group of costs includes the central passenger 
department, advertising, schedule publication, ticket offices in major cities, and central 
passenger car shops. 

The problem created by these costs was described by EBS as follows: 

"At the outset, an important issue must be faced. The approach and treatment of 
costs would be different depending on whether one were studying the abandon- 
ment of all passenger service, or merely that of a particular train. If passenger 
service is regarded largely as an incremental operation superimposed on a system 
now basically designed for freight, there are a number of costs which must be 
included in the "actual loss" calculation which would not be involved in the 
variable costing of a given train. Windsor Station, for example, will continue to be 

59 R.T.C. 



-404- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



needed as long as any trains are run but not if there is no passenger service at all. 
Thus, elimination of one out of several individual trains might result in no variable 
station cost, but elimination of the last train would then show an enormous variable 
cost. In effect, each successive discontinuance will leave an increasing load of fixed 
passenger costs to be borne by the remaining passenger trains still in service." 

EBS went on to recommend that the variable costs used to calculate the actual loss 
of passenger-train services should be defined in terms of passenger service as a whole. 
Costs of individual services would include a portion of the costs which are common to all 
passenger services but which do not vary with individual passenger trains. 

The Governments of the Provinces objected to the EBS approach because it was 
based on two assumptions, first that passenger service in Canada is generally shrinking, 
and second that it is generally unprofitable. Counsel for the Government of Manitoba 
quoted data published by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics for the years 1961 to 1966 
to show that while passenger miles and passenger revenues of Canadian Pacific had 
decreased, those of Canadian National, on the other hand, had increased considerably. He 
further stated that: 

"... many people in Canada are still dependent on rail passenger service .... I will 
not accept, and the Provinces do not accept, the bland statement that there is no 
role for the train, the railway, in the movement of people ... we believe that the 
early demise of all passenger services is unwarranted, and cannot be relied upon as 
an alternative to resolving the technical problems of passenger-train costing. We 
recommend that the railways be required to determine the avoidable cost of a 
passenger-train service ... by determination of the actual operations and faciUties 
required only for the service, and thereby of the directly measurable expenses 
which would be avoided by terminating the service." 

Counsel for the Government of Ontario was particularly concerned that the EBS 
approach appears to assume that all passenger services are unprofitable. He pointed out 
that if common costs were included in the actual loss calculation for a single unprofitable 
train operating in an otherwise profitable service area, the railways would be ehgible for a 
subsidy which would include costs that would have been incurred regardless of whether 
the train in question had been discontinued. The result would be an inflated subsidy and 
an undue burden on the pubHc treasury. In his words, "The fact that railways may apply 
for a large number of services does not justify a payment of an excessive subsidy for the 
maintenance of particular services." 

In contrast with the Provincial position, Canadian Pacific strongly supported the 
inclusion of common passenger costs in actual loss calculations, but not for the same 
reasons as EBS. As Counsel for Canadian Pacific expressed it: 

"I submit, with respect, that it does not matter one iota whether the 
passenger-train service, or the region, or the system is making or losing money. In 
every case the railway incurs costs in fumishing facihties, and so long as the railway 

59 R.T.C. 



-405 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



incurs more costs than revenues in furnishing a passenger-train service, all costs 
attributable to the service must be included in the actual loss calculations." 

This approach in consistent with the Canadian Pacific view of costing for branch line 
abandonment, that the term "cost incurred", used in sections 314A and 3141, precludes 
any consideration of "avoidable costs". 

Findings of the Committee 

The issue of whether to include common passenger costs in actual loss calculations 
revolves essentially around the question of what is being costed. If a single passenger-train 
service is the subject of study, then only the costs attributable to that service should 
appropriately be included in the loss calculation. If all the passenger-train services in a 
group of services are under consideration, then all costs attributable to that group should 
be included. Finally, if all passenger service on the railway is being considered, then the 
calculation should include all costs attributable to the total passenger service of the 
railway. 

Section 3141 (1) provides that passenger-train service means such train or trains as 
are capable of carrying passengers and are declared by the Committee to comprise a 
passenger-train service, and that costs for the actual loss calculation shall be the "costs 
incurred by the company in carrying passengers by the passenger-train service". It is the 
"passenger-train service" under review which is being costed. 

In interpreting the words "costs incurred" in section 3141 (1) of the Railway Act, 
the Committee finds that only variable costs can appropriately be assigned to an 
individual movement or service, and does not accept the inclusion in the actual loss 
calculation for a passenger-train service of any costs which are not variable with that 
service. Accordingly, the Committee disagrees with the recommendation of BBS that a 
portion of all common passenger costs be included as attributable to each individual 
passenger-train service for which discontinuance applications are made. 

On the other hand, we are aware that the effect of this treatment will be to charge 
common passenger costs to the last train or trains in a service. Such costs do not become 
variable until discontinuance of the last train or trains in a service, and this fact should be 
reflected in the costing procedure. Accordingly, any common costs which are fixed in 
relation to individual passenger-train services, but variable with a group of such services, 
should be included in the actual loss calculation of the last passenger-train service in the 
group which generates the common costs in question. Costs which are attributable to the 
railway's total passenger service but which are fixed in relation to any individual service, 
or group of services, cannot be considered variable as long as the railway continues to 
operate passenger services. 

The Committee, in deciding which passenger-train services are to be retained will 
want to consider the relative losses incurred by each of the services proposed for 
discontinuance, and will also want to consider the possibilities of reducing the common 

59 R.T.C. 



-406- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



costs of passenger service, consonant with the level of service deemed necessary. For this 
reason, the Committee will require a cost calculation showing the allocation of common 
costs among the group of services which generates them in determining whether to retain 
a passenger-train service. 

Based on these considerations, the Committee will use the discretion granted in 
section 314J (7) to include or exclude "such items and factors relating to costs and 
revenues as to the Commission seem proper" in determining the extent to which some or 
all of the common costs should be borne by the public treasury to preserve necessary 
passenger services. 

3. Feeder Services 

Several of the parties raised the point that a narrow focus on a single passenger-train 
service might overlook the impUcations of discontinuance on the revenues of other 
services. As expressed in the Provincial submission: 

"A train may have feeder and return value. Dropping a Quebec to Montreal train 
may reduce patronage on a train from Montreal to Toronto. Dropping a morning 
Quebec to Toronto train may reduce return journeys on an afternoon train from 
Montreal to Quebec. On the other hand, where there are several trains on one route 
or on parallel routes, dropping one train may not imply the loss of all the 
passengers; they may simply shift to the remaining trains. 

Obviously, the economic effect on the railways of the discontinuance of a passenger 
train or trains must be measured by a comparison of revenue foregone and expenses 
avoided by the system, not merely by the train." 

The Governments of the Provinces correctly recognize that the actual loss formula 
in section 3141 precludes consideration of revenue or cost effects on other services. That 
section refers only to the costs and revenues of carrying passengers by the passenger-train 
service under consideration. The Provinces advocate that these effects be included in the 
"uneconomic" analysis under subsections (5) and (6) of section 3141. 

We agree that the cost and particularly revenue effects on other services must be 
considered in reaching a decision to designate a service "uneconomic" and to permit 
discontinuance. 

The potential importance of these revenue effects is sufficiently great that the 
Committee has decided that following the determination that an actual loss exists, the 
railways should submit a statement showing their estimate of the revenue and cost 
influence, if any, which the proposed discontinuance will have on any other passenger- 
train services within the Canadian railway system. 

4. Non-passenger Services of Passenger Trains 

The Governments of the Provinces also urged that consideration be given to the 
revenue and cost effects of mail, express and any other non-passenger services which are 

59 R.T.C. 



-407- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



performed by passenger trains. Again, there is a recognition that the actual loss formula, 
because it deals with the costs and revenues of carrying passengers, precludes 
consideration of these effects. 

The Committee agrees that these influences, like those of connecting and substitute 
trains, can have an important bearing on both the "uneconomic" designation and the 
decision to discontinue. Accordingly, the Committee will require the railways to submit 
full details regarding the costs and revenues of non-passenger services operating on 
passenger trains and the disposition of such services in the event of discontinuance. This 
information should be supplied to the Committee when an application is made to 
discontinue a passenger-train service. 

COSTS OF OTHER THAN CLASS I RAILWAYS 

There are four classes of railways subject to the jurisdiction of the Railway 
Transport Committee, and these are grouped as follows: 

"Class L Canadian National Railways and Canadian Pacific Railway Company and 
their related operations which are defined as Canadian rail operations. 

Class n. Other carriers having average gross revenues of $500,000 or more annually 
from Canadian rail transportation operations. 

Class III. Other carriers having average gross revenues of less than $500,000 
annually from Canadian rail transportation operations. 

Class IV. Other companies which report under the Railway Act, such as terminal, 
bridge, tunnel and pullman companies." 

The costing problems outlined in other sections have particular reference to the 
Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific. The preponderance of such problems, 
however, would also apply to other railways in their submissions under the various 
sections of the Act. 

Section 387B of the Railway Act, in directing the Committee to prescribe costs, 
makes no distinction as to the type and size of the railway; the duty to prescribe applies 
to all types and sizes. 

Order No. 96404 of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada permitted 
the use of the Condensed Classification of Expense Accounts for Class II, Class III and 
Class rv carriers. This results in the books of the companies following it being less 
particularized than those of the Class I railways. Groups of expense items that are 
separately recorded for Class I railways become merged into one group for the smaller 
roads. For example, Ties which are recorded under account 212 for Class I become 
merged with five other items for the smaller roads under account 2202 "Maintaining 
roadway and track". 

The remedy for this situation could be to repeal the condensed classification and 
apply a single classification to all railways. This would entail a much more elaborate 

59 R.T.C. 



-408 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



scheme of accounting than might be necessary for the normal functions of the railway 
concerned. Counsel for the Wabush Railway Company opposed such a procedure. That 
railway was the only Class II line participating in the Inquiry. 

The obstacles to the formulation of cost factors lie more particularly within the 
field of variable costs. It is in this field that techniques such as regression analyses have 
been developed by the major companies and which the smaller may be unable to apply 
usefully, or may lack the means so to do. A suggestion was made during the Inquiry that 
regression data of the major railways be furnished to the smaUer but was objected to by 
one of the major railways on the ground that it was not necessary in the public interest to 
reveal Class I railways' working figures to the other roads. 

EBS reported that it analyzed a number of Class II railways and that it discussed 
the matter of costs with representatives of four of these companies in an effort to develop 
a workable procedure, but found so many variations in operating situations and kinds of 
records that no one acceptable formula could be adopted. 

It was the opinion of EBS that consideration must be given to changing the 
accounting system to make it better suited to costing needs but that meanwhile costing 
for Class II railways be carried out on a case-by-case basis with full disclosure to the 
Committee of the methods and factors employed. EBS recommended that this procedure 
should prevail until some firm costing procedure is developed for Class II railways. 

This is advice which the practicalities of the situation indicate the Committee 
should accept, yet we are not relieved by the Railway Act from the duty of prescribing 
the cost factors. Some initial measures must be adopted and as better procedures emerge 
the provisions of section 387B of the Act providing for change can be invoked. 

It is clear that where costs can be directly ascertained for the smaller railways they 
are to be employed. For development of variable costs, the procedures for Class I railways 
should be employed and modified where necessary in the judgment of the Committee. 
The Committee must also apply its judgment in reviewing cost submissions of the smaller 
railways with the expectancy that it can do so with full knowledge of the procedures 
followed by the company concerned. In some instances, such as the jointly owned Class 
II line of Northern Alberta Railways, the unit costs of one of its parent line's unit costs 
should be used in variable cost determinations. Counsel for Canadian National Railways 
foresaw that this will require the selection to be made by the Committee, with which we 
agree. 

It is not anticipated at this time that branch Une abandonment is a matter of 
consequence in respect of Class II railways. Some parts of their systems may become the 
subject of branch line abandonment but not necessarily as a branch line is defined in 
section 314A (b) of the Railway Act. 

It is more likely that the smaller railways will be involved with sections 3141 and 
314J, passenger-train service discontinuance; section 334, compensatory rates; and 
section 336, maximum fixed rates.

These contingencies make it necessary that the Committee prescribe a method of 
determining costs in compHance with the provisions of the Railway Act. 

As an initial step until a more detailed method is developed, we will direct that 
costs of other than Class I railways be determined upon the following broad factors: 

1. Direct costs should be used to the extent feasible; 

2. Empirical adaptation of factors employed by Class I railways for other than 
direct assignment of costs should prevail; 

3. Submissions to the Committee of detailed cost statements should be accom- 
panied by full disclosure of the methods and factors appHed in each case as it 
arises; 

4. The Committee will review such cost data and make such adjustments as it 
deems necessary. 

Disclosure of cost information of Other than Class I railways will be ordered on the 
same principles as the Committee employs for Class I railways. 

COSTING MANUALS 

During the hearing, W. B. Saunders of EBS recommended that the Cost Order to be 
issued should not include descriptions of the actual costing procedures of the railways. 

He recommended that instead, each railway be required to file, as a document 
supplementary to the Cost Order, a complete description of the methods and procedures 
for applying the principles contained in the Cost Order. 

The recommendations of EBS in this respect were accepted in principle by all 
parties but some were of the opinion that such descriptive matter referred to herein as a 
"Costing Manual" should not be adopted for use in costing without the Committee's 
prior approval thereof; others suggested that the Costing Manuals should be developed by 
the Committee as part of the Cost Order. 

In our consideration of these suggestions, we are impressed not only with the 
desirability but also the necessity for such a Costing Manual. Section 387B of the Railway 
Act requires us to prescribe "items and factors" and we have done so in the Cost Order; 
the Act, however, does not similarly obligate us to prescribe the methods or procedures 
for applying such items and factors. 

We recognize that it is essential for all concerned to be aware of the methods and 
procedures and that such methodology be in conformity with the regulations prescribed 
pursuant to section 387B. We also recognize that there can be no departure from the 
principles contained in the Cost Order through the medium of some provision in the 
Costing Manuals, nor can proposed amendments to the Costing Manuals suspend any 
proceedings pursuant to the Railway Act and the Cost Order.

Where it becomes necessary to amend the Cost Order, the statutory procedure is 
laid down by subsections (2) to (5) of section 387B of the Railway Act, but, as methods 
of costing are subject to change as new and better procedures are developed, the 
Committee anticipates there will be occasions when it becomes desirable to amend a 
Costing Manual. We contemplate such changes in methodology being made from time to 
time, subject to certain safeguards without involving the statutory procedure in section 
387B. Should a proposed amendment to a Costing Manual involve a change in the Cost 
Order, there would of necessity have to be compHance with the requirements of the Act 
concerning such change. 

The preparation and submission to the Committee of cost data is essentially a 
function of the railway and the Committee is of the opinion it is reasonable to require the 
railway to describe fully its methods of determining the costs it submits. We consider it is 
essential that such descriptions be initiated by the railways but that the Committee 
maintain supervision and control thereof. 

The Committee will, therefore, direct each Class I railway to prepare and file with 
the Committee a Costing Manual containing complete descriptions of the methods and 
procedures of costing which it follows. Such filing will be required within 30 days from 
the date the Cost Order takes effect. 

One copy of such Costing Manual will be furnished to each of the parties who 
entered appearances at the hearing during this Inquiry. Within such period of time from 
the date of transmission of these copies to parties of record as the Committee may direct, 
such parties may submit, in writing, to the Committee any views they desire to express 
concerning such Costing Manuals. Upon the expiration of such period, the Committee 
will confirm the filing of the Costing Manuals, subject to any changes it deems necessary. 

Upon the confirmation of the filing of Costing Manuals, no changes in them will be 
allowed except by leave of the Committee. 

THE COST ORDER 

This section concerns the Cost Order that is prescribed by the Committee pursuant 
to section 387B of the Railway Act. 

It is necessary that the Committee give consideration to its Cost Order in relation to 
the Board's Cost Order and the changes in it that result from the Inquiry. 

In the first section of these reasons, the Committee reviewed the history of the 
Inquiry. It began with the enactment of the Board's Cost Order, which was followed by 
the appeal of the Governments of the Provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan 
to the Govemor-in-Council pursuant to section 53 of the Railway Act. We also reviewed 
the circumstances surrounding the commencement of this Inquiry after many meetings 
and discussions between the Committee and the various parties in interest. It is necessary 
to refer to some of these matters again.

Section 387B (1) of the Railway Act directs the prescription, by regulations, for 
any of the purposes of the Act, of the items and factors which shall be relevant in the 
determination of costs. To meet this requirement, the Board of Transport Commissioners 
issued Order No. 123994 on April 5, 1967, the Board's Cost Order. 

Subsections (2), (3), (4) and (5) of section 387B anticipate change in the cost 
regulations, and these provisions contain the procedure that must be followed when 
amendments are proposed, either by the Committee or by others. 

Subsection (2) of section 387B (and the procedure laid down by subsections (3) 
and (4)) govern amendments to the cost regulations initiated by the Committee, and gives 
a statutory right to any transportation company, organization, provincial authority or 
municipal authority to submit its views and recommendations concerning such 
amendments to the Committee, if need be at public hearings called for the purpose. 

Subsection (5) of the section provides the means whereby persons other than the 
Committee may propose amendments to the cost regulations with the assurance that 
where their proposals are meritorious they will be considered and, in a proper case, acted 
upon after such pubHc hearings as are desirable. 

That the Board of Transport Commissioners had considered these provisions when 
it enacted Order No. 123994, is clear from the preamble to the Order itself: 

"The cost regulations which are prescribed by . . . Order No. 123994 are of 
course the initial cost regulations and are not inflexible. There is provision in 
Section 387B, for the Board or the new Commission to amend the regulations and 
for proposals by other persons, also for amendments. The Board will welcome 
proposals to improve the regulations as experience with their application is gained 
or a need for change or addition becomes apparent. A measure of flexibiHty has 
been built into the present regulations in order to make them practical to meet 
day-to-day situations. They will also be kept under continuous review as cost 
methods and procedures develop and as suggestions are made respecting the 
regulations." 

Mention has already been made of the fact that the Board's Cost Order was 
appealed and that in dismissing the appeal, the Governor-in-Council confirmed its 
validity. The appeal is mentioned again here because of the significance of that part of the 
decision concerned with section 387B of the Act. 

Order-in-Council P.C. 1967-2063, dismissing the appeal, set forth the main grounds 
on which the appeal was based: 

1. The Board's Cost Order was made ex parte without affording parties interested 
in or affected by the Order to make representations and to be heard at public 
hearings at which all principles, factors and issues relative to the proper 
determination of the railway costs could be discussed and considered; 

2. The Order was contrary to the spirit of the Railway Act as amended by the 
National Transportation Act; and 

59 R.T.C. 



-412- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



3. The Board failed to give consideration as it was required to do by section 387B 
of the Railway Act to the principles of costing adopted by the MacPherson 
Royal Commission in arriving at the conclusions contained in its report, and to 
later developments in railway costing methods and techniques and to current 
conditions of railway operations. 

In support of these grounds, the appellants gave particulars of the alleged imperfections 
or inadequacies of the Board's treatment of certain specific items and factors of cost, i.e., 
Output Units, Road Maintenance, Signals, Freight Car Repairs, Traffic and General 
Expense and Cost of Capital. 

The appellant Provinces asked the Govemor-in-Council to rescind the Board's Cost 
Order and to direct that a new Cost Order be developed by the Commission after full and 
complete public hearings, or to restrict the Board's Cost Order to limited and interim use 
until a new Order could be developed after such pubHc hearings. 

The Govemor-in-Council gave full consideration in Order-in-Council P.C. 
1967-2063 to the grounds of appeal and the relief sought, and then said: 

"And whereas it is further concluded the relief sought by the petitioners for the 
rescission of the said Order of the Board and for hearings to be held by the Board 
before promulgating new costing regulations is properly not one by way of an 
appeal to the Govemor-in-Council pursuant to Section 53 of the Railway Act but 
by way of a proposal pursuant to subsection (5) of section 387B of the Act for 
amendment to the costing regulations as prescribed by the said Order of the Board. 

Therefore, His Excellency the Govemor-General in Council, on the recom- 
mendation of the Minister of Transport, hereby dismisses the appeal of the 
provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta against Order No. 123994 of the 
Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada dated April 5, 1967, prescribing 
costing regulations." 

The Committee recognized that because the Governor-in-Council said that the 
appellant Provinces had recourse to the procedure laid down by subsection (5) of section 
387B, and because there were before the Govemor-in-Council by way of appeal the 
substantive matters we have referred to, for decision on their merits, there were proposals 
for amendments to the Board's Cost Order which ought to be given consideration. 

The procedure which the Committee followed throughout the Inquiry has been 
described elsewhere in these reasons. Details of steps taken to ensure the widest possible 
participation in the work of devising the new Cost Order have also been enumerated. 

The Committee anticipated that the procedure which was followed would result in 
proposals coming forward from the railways, the Governments of the Provinces, and the 
other parties of record which would call for substantial changes in the Board's Cost Order 
as originally enacted in April 1967. Our expectations in this regard were more than 
fulfiUed.

The form of the Cost Order which the Committee issues concurrently with these 
reasons requires some explanation. Prior to the commencement of the hearing, the parties 
of record filed their submissions and recommendations with the Committee. In addition, 
during the hearing three of the parties, Canadian Pacific, Canadian National and the 
Governments of the Provinces, filed Exhibits CP-5, CN-2 and P-3, consisting of the new 
Cost Order in the form proposed by the party fiHng it. 

In some cases, no change in the Board's Cost Order results from the material 
submitted. In the remaining cases, where changes have resulted, they have been 
consolidated with the continuing provisions from the Board's Cost Order, and, for clarity 
and ease of reference. Order No. R-6313 is issued and Order No. 123994 is rescinded. 

OTHER MATTERS 

The purpose of these proceedings was to inquire into all the questions of railway 
costs arising out of the Board's Cost Order and the proposals and recommendations in the 
submissions of the parties. In these reasons, the Committee has considered all the 
proposals and recommendations that relate directly to the items and factors relevant in 
the determination of costs and has made its findings in respect of them. 

However, there were three important matters raised by the Governments of the 
Provinces in their submission which do not come directly under section 387B of the 
Railway Act but that unquestionably relate to railway costs. These are Disclosure of 
Costing Information, Burden Studies and Uniformity of Costing Methods. 

When the Inquiry began, the Committee said that it would welcome submissions on 
all cost-related questions and gave the parties the assurance that matters outside the 
confines of section 387B would be considered both at the hearing and in the findings of 
the Committee. In response to this assurance, these three matters were the subject of 
evidence and were fully argued at the hearing. 

Burden Studies and Uniformity of Costing Methods are considered later in these 
reasons; our findings in respect of the Disclosure question are explained below. 

Disclosure of Cost Information 

Disclosure of cost information requires an examination of section 387C of the 
Railway Act. Much of the hearing was devoted to the meaning of this section, which 
raised one of the more important and contentious issues the Committee had to consider 
in the Inquiry. 

Section 387C of the Railway Act provides: 

"387C. Where information conceming the costs of a railway company or other 
information that is by its nature confidential is obtained from the company by the 
Commission in the course of any investigation under this Act, such information 
shall not be published or revealed in such a manner as to be available for the use of 

59 R.T.C. 



-414- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



any other person, unless in the opinion of the Commission such publication is 
necessary in the public interest." 

Before exploring this issue in depth, it is necessary to deal with a preliminary 
question; what is the information that is govemed by section 387C? 

During the hearing the question was raised whether section 387C extends only to 
one category of information, i.e., cost information that is by its nature confidential or, 
instead, whether it includes two separate categories, information concerning costs and 
information that is by its nature confidential. 

The point was fully argued and Counsel for Canadian Pacific and Counsel for the 
Government of Manitoba reached essentially the same conclusion, that there are two 
categories, and that the word "or" in section 387C is disjunctive and the section extends 
to all cost information coming into the hands of the Committee in the course of an 
investigation under the Railway Act and, by the same means, to all other information 
that is by its nature confidential. 

The Committee agrees with this interpretation of section 387C. It is unnecessary 
for us at this time to explore further the range of possible meanings that might be 
ascribed to the expression "or other information that is by its nature confidential" 
because the only information with which we are here concerned relates to the costs of 
one or more railway companies. 

As has been explained, the disclosure issue was placed squarely before the 
Committee by the Governments of the Provinces in their principal submission, Exhibit 
P-1. This submission asked the Committee to order what was described as reasonable 
disclosure of cost data. This would mean that disclosure of all except what might be 
called proprietary cost information would be the rule rather than the exception. The 
Canadian Trucking Associations and the Canadian Co-operative Wheat Producers, to 
mention only two of the other parties, expressed support for this general approach to the 
problem of disclosure. 

The railways, on the other hand, took the position that if there was to be any 
disclosure at all it should be minimal. They supported their argument by an interpretation 
of section 387C of the Act which laid great stress upon the element of necessity which 
they urged must be clearly present in any case being considered by the Committee before 
disclosure could be ordered. Because Parliament, in enacting section 387C, had protected 
all cost information from publication except in the circumstances permitted, we were 
asked to accept the principle that secrecy in the matter of costs was the rule laid down by 
the Railway Act and that disclosure or publication should only be ordered in exceptional 
cases. 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific was asked by the Committee whether he would 
extend this principle to the kind of cost information which had been freely circulated 
among parties interested in branch line abandonment or passenger-train discontinuance 
cases occurring prior to the enactment of the National Transportation Act and section 

59 R.T.C. 



-415 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



387C of the Railway Act. In answer, he said that whatever may have been the practice 
before the new legislation came into force, cost information contained in those 
submissions must be judged under the new legislation and in his submission such 
information is not subject to publication except when the Committee finds it necessary in 
the public interest. 

It follows that cost data which were published for all to see in applications to 
abandon branch lines and discontinue passenger trains before the National Transportation 
Act came into force would now, in the railways' opinion, be subject to publication only 
in the exceptional circumstances in which they foresee the Committee exercising its 
discretion in favour of disclosure. 

Findings of the Committee 

It would be a rare occurrence for information concerning the costs of railway 
companies to come into the hands of the Committee in some way other than through an 
investigation under one of the sections of the Railway Act. However, we have concluded 
til at the time to deal with this question is when the meaning of the expression "in the 
course of any investigation under this Act" in section 387C is at issue in some future case, 
not as part of a general inquiry. The real question for present purposes is in what 
circumstances should we exercise our discretion in favour of disclosure of cost 
information. 

During his main argument, Counsel for Canadian Pacific considered this question 
and concluded that the language of section 387C makes the power of the Committee to 
order disclosure very limited. Because the power of the Committee to order disclosure of 
cost information stems from the language used by Parliament in section 387C of the 
Railway Act, and because the extent of that power is central to the entire disclosure 
issue, the arguments of Canadian Pacific merit full consideration. 

Counsel for the Company said: 

"The second point I wish to note about section 387C is that it is perfectly clear in 
another aspect, and that is that it states first the general rule that confidential 
information shall be kept confidential. The statement is clear, and in my 
submission, completely unambiguous. 

The section then provides for an exception to the rule: namely, that confidential 
information may be published if, in the opinion of the Commission, such 
publication is necessary in the public interest." 

Later he added: 

". . . but in considering what is necessary in the public interest, Mr. Chairman, I 
submit that the starting point must always be the plain fact that ParHament, in 
enacting the general rule as to confidentiality in section 387C, stated clearly the 
public interest requires that confidential railway information be kept confidential, 
except in the exceptional case. To argue the opposite would be to argue that 

59 R.T.C. 



-416 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Parliament deliberately enacted a general rule contrary to the public interest .... It 
is thus clear that Parliament in passing these new sections which introduced a 
cost-oriented concept of regulation in certain areas, enacted section 387C for the 
precise purpose of protecting the confidentiality of costs and other information 
which would be furnished to the Commission in connection with those sections." 

At this point Counsel for Canadian Pacific was asked by the Committee whether 
the word "necessary" stood alone for purposes of interpretation of section 387C, or 
whether it took its colour from the words "in the public interest" that follow it. Counsel 
replied: 

"I have no hesitation in saying that it would be unfair to stop in the section after 
the word 'necessary', but I would respectfully submit that what the Commission 
must find is not just that it might be in the public interest to publish that 
information, but that the pubHc interest cannot do without publication. This is 
what, in my submission, the words 'necessary in the public interest' mean." 

By this argument. Counsel for Canadian Pacific asked us to conclude that 
Parliament had laid down a rule of secrecy in respect of railway costs, and that this rule is 
to be enforced more often than not. We cannot find any such meaning in the language 
used by Parliament in section 387C of the Railway Act. Section 387C simply says that 
disclosure of cost information may be ordered when the pubHc interest makes it 
necessary, but in all other cases it is not to be pubHshed. 

This conclusion is not markedly different in effect from the one that was urged 
upon us by the Governments of the Provinces and other like-minded parties. They said 
that we ought not to interpret section 387C narrowly because it gives the Committee a 
broad discretion. 

We have concluded that in any given case it is for the Committee to say whether 
disclosure is necessary in the public interest and there is no restriction placed on the 
Committee by section 387C on what matters it may take into account in making such a 
decision. There are, of course, limitations imposed by the law upon the exercise of a 
discretionary power by a body such as the Committee, but, subject to them, it alone has 
the authority to make the decision. 

In a case involving certain powers of the Board of Transport Commissioners under 
the Railway Act, Chief Justice Duff expressed the principle which, in the opinion of the 
Committee, applies to the question: when is it necessary in the pubHc interest to order 
disclosure? 

"The law dictates neither the order to be made in a given case nor the 
considerations by which the Board is to be guided in arriving at the conclusion that 
an order, or what order, is necessary or proper in a given case. True, it is the duty of 
all public bodies and others invested with statutory powers to act reasonably in the 
execution of them, but the policy of the statute is that, subject to the appeal to the 
Governor-in-Council under section 52, in exercising an administrative discretion 

59 R.T.C. 



-417- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



entrusted to it, the Board itself is to be the final arbiter as to the order to be 
made.": Duff C.J.C. in Canadian National Railways vs Bell Telephone Company et 
fl/ (1939) S.C.R. 308 at 315; (1940) 50 C.R.T.C. 10 at 17. 

As Counsel for Canadian Pacific himself said, the new sections of the Railway Act 
introduced a cost-oriented concept of regulation, and it is against this background that 
the Committee must exercise its power to order disclosure of information concerning the 
costs of railway companies whenever the necessities of the public interest demand it. 

We have, accordingly, considered what matters must be taken into account when 
the Committee is deciding whether disclosure of cost information is necessary in the 
public interest. 

In the declaration of the National Transportation Policy contained in section 1 of 
the National Transportation Act, it is stated as one of the objectives of that Policy that: 

". . . each mode of transport, so far as practicable, receives compensation for the 
resources, facilities and services that it is required to provide as an imposed public 
duty." 

This principle is carried forward into the Railway Act and is to be found first and 
foremost in section 469. This section provides for the payment between 1967 and 1974 
of subsidies to the railways totalling $488,000,000 on the reducing annual balance of 
"normal payments" set out therein. 

Sections 314A to 314J of the Railway Act contemplate that in some circumstances 
branch lines and passenger-train services may be retained in operation in the public 
interest, and the railways that are required to continue them in operation are entitled to 
claim annually from the public treasury the actual losses they incur. It is probable that 
payment of these claims may in some years exceed the "normal payments" provided by 
section 469, particularly when they have declined as 1974 approaches, or after 1974 
when they have completely disappeared. It is important to note that the basis for 
calculation of the amounts of these claims is the actual loss incurred by the line or service 
and this loss is the amount by which the cost of operating the line or service exceeds the 
revenue it earns. 

Sections 314A to 314J of the Railway Act contain the new principles which govern 
applications by the railways to abandon branch Hnes and to discontinue passenger-train 
services. The determination of the cost of operation of any given line or service is critical 
to the decision whether to abandon or discontinue. In the first place, the Committee has 
no power to authorize the abandonment of a hne or the discontinuance of a service unless 
there is an actual loss. And in the second, the magnitude of the actual loss will be a very 
important factor in deciding whether that line or service should be abandoned or 
discontinued. 

In the context of abandonment and discontinuance applications, it has often been 
argued, as indeed it was during the hearing, that without some reasonable disclosure of 

59 R.T.C. 



-418 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



cost data the parties to the proceedings, other than the railways, are at a serious 
disadvantage because all of the facts in the case are not available to them. 

The Committee believes that this argument applies with equal force to rate cases, 
particularly when it is dealing with a complaint under section 334, that a rate is 
non-compensatory. And it is not just a matter of the advantage of one party over another 
in adversary type proceedings before the Committee. Translated into the process whereby 
cost determinations are made, whether in rail rationalization or in the examination of 
individual rates, the absence of reasonable access to railway cost data has other 
implications. 

The effect of an abandonment or a discontinuance in one community or region 
may well be widely different from its effect in another. In every one of these cases the 
decision of the Committee is based on a cost determination which must then be applied 
to the needs and requirements of the locale in which it is to take effect. It is important 
that the Committee have the full benefit of the local or regional point of view on any 
such issue that is before it for decision. Unless those who represent that point of view 
have a reasonable opportunity to analyze the significant data bearing upon the issue, and 
make their arguments accordingly, it is difficult to see how the Committee can make a 
decision with the assurance that the relevant economic and social implications have been 
taken fully into account. 

When it is recognized that the process just described will most often involve a 
public hearing, the Committee believes that reasonable disclosure of cost information is 
essential. Without disclosure in favour of the people most directly affected, the 
Committee does not have the full benefit of their participation, nor do they have an 
adequate appreciation of the implications of the Committee's decision. 

The present Inquiry is a case in point. These proceedings which are now ending 
have throughout been conducted on the basis that the railways, the Governments of the 
Provinces and the other interested parties were themselves making proposals for the 
betterment of the science and art of cost determination, and while about two months 
were occupied in formal hearings at which evidence and argument were heard, the work 
of the technical committee which preceded the main hearings was every bit as important 
a part of the Inquiry. The Inquiry, from beginning to end, benefited from the full 
participation of everyone involved, and this was made possible by reasonable disclosure of 
cost data by the railways to EBS and all of the other parties of record who took part in 
the Inquiry or appeared at the hearing. The Committee is firmly of the opinion that the 
disclosure of cost data to the extent it was made was of vital importance to the success of 
the Inquiry. 

It is true that the Committee could have required the railways to make cost data 
available to it alone and could then have proceeded to conduct the Inquiry with the 
assistance of its consultants. But the fact that much cost information was made freely 
available by the railways to others ensured that the results of mature consideration of the 

59 R.T.C. 



-419- 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



railway costing problem by the ten Provincial Governments, the representatives of the 
Western wheat pools and the trucking industry, and all the other interests were made 
available to the Committee. 

All of these considerations have persuaded the Committee that reasonable 
disclosure of cost information is necessary in the public interest where cost determination 
is required of the Committee by the Railway Act. We are confirmed in this opinion after 
considering subsections (2), (3), (4) and (5) of section 387B of the Act, which provide 
collectively for the procedure to make changes in the cost regulations. The Committee 
does not think it would be an effective way of bringing about later changes in the cost 
regulations, either through amendments proposed by the Committee itself or by reason of 
proposals advanced by someone other than the Committee unless there is reasonable 
disclosure of cost information such as took place in this Inquiry. Indeed, it seems to the 
Committee that a proposal for an amendment to the cost regulations in the future by a 
party other than the railways would be unlikely unless the public had reasonable access to 
railway cost information because there would be little or no basis on which such a 
proposal for change could be founded. 

During the hearing it was suggested by the Governments of the Provinces that the 
Cost Order which is to be issued ought to contain a general direction prescribing the 
nature and extent of disclosure of cost information. The railways argued strongly against 
any such general direction on the main ground that to do so would be to negate the 
intent of section 387C. 

The Committee is of the opinion that it would be an unreasonable exercise of its 
power under section 387C to attempt at this time to direct the railways generally as to 
the information concerning costs that should be published. The Cost Order that is to be 
issued stems from section 387B of the Act and should be confined to the items and 
factors relevant in the determination of costs and should not contain regulations dealing 
with other matters. And any such general direction would fail to take into account one 
element of the public interest that has not been mentioned. 

Unquestionably, there is cost information in the possession of the railways to which 
the Committee has access but which ought not to be published as being proprietary in 
nature and whose disclosure would do the railways actual harm. Such information is 
normally provided to the Committee from the railways' working papers, and we do not 
think that it would be in the public interest to publish such information because the harm 
that could be done to them would far outweigh any short term advantage to parties to 
any proceedings involving a cost determination. At the same time, there is other cost 
information which should be made available to the public for the reasons stated earlier. 
But even this information may be subject to considerations which would persuade us to 
order a more limited publication or no publication at all in a particular case. It is not 
possible for the Committee to foresee all of the circumstances that might apply in the

PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



Concurrently with the issue of the Cost Order, the Committee will prescribe the 
cost information that is to be published in respect of applications for abandonment of 
branch lines and discontinuance of passenger-train services. This it will do under its power 
to make regulations concerning the form and content of abandonment and discon- 
tinuance applications in sections 314B and 3141 and to order disclosure of railway cost 
information under section 387C. 

The extent to which information concerning railway costs governed by section 
387C will be published as part of the principal conclusions of the Committee's report 
made under section 314B (4), or in explanation of any finding of actual loss following the 
filing of an application to discontinue a passenger-train service pursuant to section 3141 
(9), is a question that will be decided when the report is being prepared or the finding of 
actual loss has been made. 

Sections 334 and 336 of the Railway Act create a special problem relative to 
disclosure of cost information. 

Section 334 requires that all freight rates shall be compensatory and subsection (5) 
of that section leaves it open to any person to bring to the Committee by way of 
complaint or otherwise, information . . containing prima facie evidence that a freight 
rate ... is not compensatory". In such case the Committee must conduct an investigation 
to determine whether such rate is compensatory. 

Since to be compensatory a freight rate must exceed the variable cost, as 
determined by the Committee, of the movement of the traffic concerned, the 
Committee's investigation involves information concerning railway costs which will be 
governed by section 387C. 

From the standpoint of the complainant, this raises two fundamental questions 
relating to disclosure. How can he obtain prima facie evidence that the rate is not 
compensatory without access to cost information, and to what extent should cost 
information developed by the Committee in its investigation based on his complaint be 
made available to him? 

The Committee is satisfied that there is already abundant data provided within the 
Waybill Analyses and in the published tariffs to afford the comparisons of rate 
characteristics needed for a prima facie case against an allegedly non-compensatory rate, 
and that publication of cost information is unnecessary for that purpose. However, 
should this prove not to be the case, the Committee will reconsider the matter. 

Once a prima facie case has been estabHshed, the need to disclose cost information 
developed from the investigation of allegedly non-compensatory rates does not appear to 
be different in principle from that of disclosing such information in cases of 
abandonment of branch lines or discontinuance of passenger-train services. At the same 
time, the Committee recognizes that effective disclosure in a case under section 334 could 
in some circumstances involve proprietary cost information whose publication could 
cause actual harm to the railway. And, although any captive shipper is free to apply under 

59 R.T.C. 



-421 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



section 336 for the range of a fixed rate without involving any attempt on his part to 
develop a cost study, the same problem relative to disclosure could arise as an application 
under this section is being decided. 

The question of disclosure in rate cases was only touched on in argument during the 
hearing and needs to be explored further, particularly by the railways. Accordingly, the 
Committee will make no decision concerning the extent to which cost information will be 
disclosed in cases under sections 334 and 336 of the Railway Act until the circumstances 
in applications under these sections can be assessed. 

Burden Studies 

The term "Burden Studies" is a colloquial description of a publication of the 
Interstate Commerce Commission of the United States showing the relationship of 
revenue to variable cost and variable plus an apportionment of constant railway costs for 
each significant class of commodities moving within or between major rate territories of 
the United States. Such studies not only indicate the relationship between rates and costs 
but also the extent to which such traffic contributes to the transportation "burden" of 
fixed costs which cannot be directly assigned to specific movements. 

During the hearing it was suggested that similar studies be undertaken and 
published for rail movements within Canada. 

The Governments of the Provinces, Wabush Mines and its associated railways, 
Algoma Steel Corporation, and Canadian Trucking Associations supported this sug- 
gestion, whereas Canadian National, Canadian Pacific and BBS opposed the recom- 
mendation. 

The Provincial position was that such studies would indicate regional and 
commodity differences in contribution to rail overheads, which differences play a 
significant role in the development of key industries and areas. The Wabush group 
considered that such information would enable a shipper to test whether an application 
should be made for a fixed rate under section 336 of the Railway Act. Algoma Steel 
Corporation stated a possible interest in the measure of compensation within a rate and in 
applications under section 336. Canadian Tmcking Associations suggested that such 
burden studies would provide information which would indicate whether a prima facie 
case could be made as to the compensatory level of a rail rate instituted in competition 
with highway transport. 

In general, the two railways took the position that burden studies, if made public, 
would be at variance with the policy of confidentiality which they said now prevails and 
the Railway Act preserves; that the National Transportation Act envisages free and 
unrestricted competition; that the Railway Act provides all necessary controls in respect 
of non-compensatory rates or carriers who take advantage of a monopoly situation; and 
that it would be manifestly unfair to subject only a railway to exposure of its costs which 
would limit its ability to negotiate with shippers. 

59 R.T.C.

EBS recommended against the adoption of burden studies on the ground that they 
only develop average costs from broad system-wide data. The application of these average 
costs to specific traffic produces the inherent and fundamental error in logic of making 
apparently precise revenue and cost comparisons from data which by their nature could 
yield nothing of the sort. The publication of such averages by the Committee might 
encourage this erroneous procedure. 

Findings of the Committee 

Earlier in these reasons we discuss the question of disclosure of cost information. 

While some assistance may be rendered by burden studies, the task of producing 
and maintaining them is one of major proportions, and the results would be of doubtful 
validity for the purposes for which they are sought. 

As we have already said, there is abundant data provided within the Waybill 
Analyses and in the published tariffs to afford the comparisons of rate characteristics 
needed for a prima facie case against an allegedly non-compensatory rate. The absence of 
burden studies will not deny to a complainant the ability to produce prima facie evidence 
pursuant to section 334 of the Railway Act. In so far as appHcations under section 336 
are concerned, any captive shipper is free to apply for the range of a fixed rate without 
involving any attempt on his part to develop a cost study. 

Upon full consideration of the matter, we do not adopt the suggested issuance of 
burden studies. 

Uniformity of Costing Methods 

Most of the parties to the Inquiry, except Canadian National and Canadian Pacific, 
criticized the Board's Cost Order because it does not provide for uniformity of costing 
methods and procedures. 

Position of the Governments of the Provinces 

The Goverrmients of the Provinces argued that the separate development of costing 
techniques by the costing staffs of the two railways has resulted in a lack of uniformity in 
cost finding. The operating technologies and environments of at least the two major 
railways are the same, therefore their costing practices should also be the same. 

They further argued that the cost data of the two railways should be merged to 
produce useful composite unit costs upon which the Committee and the public can 
properly rely. Such composite unit costs would be far more than merely informative. 
Based on a larger sample, they would be more reliable than those developed separately by 
the two railways. Moreover, their publication would not reveal any actual data of either 
railway. 

Mr. Banks, for the Provinces, when cross-examined by Counsel for Canadian Pacific, 
agreed that differences between the railways in gradient, passenger and freight mix, area

-423 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 15 



AUGUST 1969 



industrialization, and the provision of service to northern areas of Canada would have 
some effect on the operating environment of each railway. He then stated: 

"All that the Provinces are suggesting in their reference to a common operating 
environment is that investigation of the possibility of developing common unit cost 
coefficients should proceed much further than it obviously has up to the present 
time. Whether resort to such a procedure will develop better unit costs than now 
available remains to be seen. Our position is firm only as to the point that it ought 
to be explored and it cannot be dismissed without investigation." 

Counsel for the Government of Manitoba said that uniformity in costing procedures 
is essential for the purposes of sections 314A to 314J, 317, 329, 334 and 336 of the 
Railway Act. He stated that there are still some important areas where uniformity in 
costing procedures between Canadian National and Canadian Pacific should exist, such as 
traffic expenses, general expenses and fuel costs. He suggested that the best available 
method should be adopted. 

Position of EBS 

At the hearing, W. B. Saunders observed that in a number of cases the railways had 
agreed to use one common method rather than continue using separate procedures. He 
said: 

"Now this costing procedure has been evoh^ing rapidly in Canada. I think Canada is 
far ahead of the average United States railway - I should say the Canadian railways 
are far ahead of the average United States railway. The evolution has, if anything, 
tended to accelerate some of the studies that were made by the railways for their 
participation in the proceedings before the Royal Commission in 1960 and 1961. It 
was our feeling that establishing a formula or recipe which codified in advance all of 
the procedures would tend to stultify progress and, in the long run, would not be of 
benefit either to the railway: or, indeed, to the economy of Canada." 

In reply to a question by Counsel for the Government of British Columbia, Mr. 
Saunders said that he favoured general uniformity so far as uniformity is not inconsistent 
with the measurement of the facts. If the facts of operation are different, if the 
circumstances of operation are different in two railways, then those differences require 
different methods of cost determination. He said it would be a mistake to force 
uniformity just for the sake of uniformity alone. 

Position of Canadian National 

Counsel for Canadian National argued that to impose uniformity for the sake of 
uniformity would in fact defeat the very purpose of this Inquiry by yielding untrue 
results for a railway contrary to its actual experience. Differences in the character of their 
operations, such as their grades, passenger and freight splits, services to heavily industrial 
areas as opposed to northern development areas, lead to the development of railway costs 
which are based on the operating factors peculiar to a particular railway.

AUGUST 1969 



In reply to a question by the Committee, Counsel agreed that the railways should 
be moving towards uniformity in costing procedures where it is feasible and possible, 
while having regard to the differences between them. 

Position of Canadian Pacific 

Counsel for Canadian Pacific agreed with the opinions expressed by EBS. He said 
that one of the problems with uniformity arises out of differences in railway operations 
and that subsection (1) of section 387 B of the Act specifically directs the Committee to 
have regard, to the extent that it deems it proper to do so, to current conditions of 
railway operation. 

In dealing with a suggestion of the Provinces that Class I railways should combine 
their data for submission into a single sample of observations to produce a single set of 
coefficients. Counsel for Canadian Pacific said that such a single set of cost coefficients 
would not yield actual costs incurred by a railway, as required by the Railway Act. 

Findings of the Committee 

There is general agreement among the parties that the railways should be moving 
toward uniformity in costing methods to the extent that it is feasible. The Committee is 
of the same view as these reasons bear out, and it will continue to require the adoption of 
uniform costing methods as and when it is practicable to do so. 

The Committee does not agree, however, with the contention of the Provinces that 
unit costs derived from consolidated expense and output data for both railways would 
more reliably reflect the costs of each railway than unit costs developed by the railways 
individually. Furthermore, an imposed uniformity on every detail of cost finding would 
inhibit the development of further refinements in costing procedures and cost and 
operating data.

(1) The Commission shall by regulation prescribe for any of the purposes of this 
Act the items and factors, including the factors of depreciation and the cost of capital as 
provided in subsection (1) of section 387 A, which shall be relevant in the determination 
of costs, and, to the extent that the Commission deems it proper and relevant to do so, 
the Commission shall have regard to the principles of costing adopted by the Royal 
Commission on Transportation appointed by the Order-in-Council dated the 13th day of 
May, 1959, in arriving at the conclusions contained in the report thereof, and to later 
developments in railway costing methods and techniques and to current conditions of 
railway operations. 

(2) When the Commission proposes to amend any regulations made under 
subsection (1), the Commission shall give notice of the proposed amendment in the 
Canada Gazette and in such additional publications as it deems desirable, and any 
transportation company, organization, provincial authority or municipal authority in 
Canada may, within twenty days from the day of the publication of the notice in the 
Canada Gazette, 

(a) request the Commission to hold hearings on the matter of the proposed 
amendment; or 

(b) give notice to the Commission that it intends to submit to the Commission 
views and recommendations on the matter of the proposed amendment, 
which views and recommendations shall be submitted in writing not later 
than forty days from the day of the publication of the notice in the Canada 
Gazette; 

and the proposed amendment shall be brought into force not earlier than sixty days from

limited therefor by this subsection a request is received by the Commission to hold 
hearings, or a written submission is received by the Commission setting out views and 
recommendations, on the matter of the proposed amendment. 

(3) Where a written submission seeking a change in a proposed amendment 
mentioned in subsection (2) is received by the Commission within the time limited 
therefor by that subsection and no request to hold hearings on the matter of the 
proposed amendment is received by the Commission within the time limited therefor by 
that subsection, the Commission shall allow a further period of thirty days for the 
circulation of the submission and the receipt of comments thereon; and the Commission 
may thereafter 

(a) bring the proposed amendment into force as originally proposed or as 
altered after receipt of the written submission and replies thereto, on a day 
fixed by the Commission; or 

(b) hold hearings on the proposed amendment. 

(4) Where a request to hold hearings on a proposed amendment mentioned in 
subsection (2) is received by the Commission within the time limited therefor by that 
subsection, or where hearings are held under subsection (3) on the proposed amendment, 
the Commission shall 

(a) circulate any written submissions received pursuant to subsection (2) that 
have not already been circulated pursuant to subsection (3); and 

(b) hold such hearings as in its opinion are necessary to enable all persons who 
wish to do so to present their views to the Commission; 

and thereafter the Commission may bring the proposed amendment into force, as 
originally proposed or as altered after such hearings, on a day fixed by the Commission. 

(5) Where an amendment to a regulation made under this section is proposed by a 
person other than the Commission and the amendment has merit in the opinion of the 
Commission, the Commission shall circulate the proposal and replies thereto and, if the 
Commission considers it desirable to do so, the Commission may

WHEREAS hearings were held for the purpose of permitting all interested parties to 
make submissions and express their views on Cost Regulations; 

WHEREAS amendments to the Regulations prescribed under Order No. 123994 
were proposed by parties who participated in meetings of a technical committee set up by 
the Canadian Transport Commission to inquire into Cost Regulations; 

WHEREAS for reasons of greater clarity it is considered desirable to incorporate 
the amendments proposed to the Regulations prescribed by Order No. 123994 by 
consolidating them in a new Order rather than by promulgating separate amendments to 
such Regulations; and 

UPON considering the submissions made and the evidence adduced at the hearings 
it is hereby ordered as follows: 

The Regulations prescribed by Order No. 123994 dated April 5, 1967, and Order 
No. 123994 are rescinded and the following Regulations entitled "Regulations Respecting 
Costs for the Purposes of Sections 314A to 314J, 317, 329, 334, 336, 387A and 387B of 
the Railway Act" are prescribed in substitution therefor. 



REGULATIONS RESPECTING COSTS FOR THE PURPOSES OF 
SECTIONS 314A to 314J, 317, 329, 334, 336, 387A 
AND 387B OF THE RAILWAY ACT 

Definitions 1 • In these Regulations, 

Committee (a) "Committee" means the Railway Transport Committee of the 

Canadian Transport Commission. 

Branch Line (b) "branch line" means a Hne of railway in Canada of a railway 

company that is subject to the jurisdiction of Parliament that, 
relative to a main line within the company's railway system in 
Canada of which it forms a part, is a subsidiary, secondary, local 
or feeder line of railway, and includes a part of any such 
subsidiary, secondary, local or feeder line of railway. 

(c) "costs" in relation to a branch line means those costs, for 
purposes of calculating actual loss, which, allowing a reasonable 
period of time for adjustment to the new condition, would have 
been avoided or would be avoided by a company if, in any 
financial year, it did not maintain and operate the branch line, 
and did not incur the variable cost of carrying the traffic 
originating or terminating on the line irrespective of when or in 
what manner, or by whom such costs were incurred. 

Passenger- train (d) "passenger-train service" means such train or trains of a 

service company as are capable of carrying passengers and are declared 

by an order of the Committee, for the purposes of Section 3141 
and Section 314J, to comprise a passenger-train service.

would have been avoided or would be avoided in the carriage of 
passengers by the service if, in any financial year a company did 
not operate the service irrespective of when, or in what manner, 
or by whom such costs were incurred. 

2. For the purposes of these Regulations, 

(a) Cost of carriage of goods under Section 336 of the Act shall 

(i) be calculated on the basis of carloads of thirty thousand 
pounds in the standard railway equipment for such goods 
and such other weights as are required for purposes of 
determining a rate. 

(ii) be computed, on the basis of the costs of the lowest cost 
rail route, if the goods concerned may move between points 
in Canada by alternative route of two or more railway 
companies. 

3. For the purposes of actual loss calculations under Sections 314A to 
314G and 3141 to 314J of the Railway Act "Abandonment and 
Rationalization of Lines or Operations", costs as defined in Section 
1 of this order shall be based either on the expense accounts 
maintained under the Uniform Classification of Accounts for 
Common Carriers by Railway and accounts reconcilable therewith, 
or on such special studies of items and factors of costs as the 
Committee considers appropriate, except as follows: 

(1) In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for 
the purposes of Sections 314E, 314G or 314J, there shall be 
included an allowance for depreciation on a periodic basis 

(a) that will reflect the annual decline in the net value that 
could be realized from the salvage of depreciable road 
property which the Committee is satisfied could or would 
be retired if the line were abandoned or the service 
discontinued, and which is required for continued opera- 
tion; and 

(b) at rates approved under the Uniform Classification of 
Accounts applied to the book value of such other depre- 
ciable assets and of such new assets as the Committee is 
satisfied are required for continued operation of the Hne or 
service.

(2) In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for 
the purposes of Sections 314E, 314G or 314J, there shall be 
included in the costs, for the last year of operation prior to 
abandonment of a line or discontinuance of a service which had 
previously been ordered retained, an allowance for depreciation 
on such new assets as the Committee is satisfied are required to 
comply with the order for retention. Such allowance for 
depreciation shall be equal to the undepreciated cost of such 
new assets calculated by deducting from the actual cost of the 
assets their salvage value and the accumulated depreciation 
allowed on them for subsidy purposes in previous years. 

Cost of (3) In computing the costs of the undertaking of the company for 

capital the purposes of Sections 314B or 3141, there shall be included 

an allowance for cost of capital as follows:
